I am a qualified primary school teacher with 3 years experience in Year 1. I love working with children and helping them learn new things and achieve things they didn't know they could. I have been a volunteer tutor for GCSE English for the last year so I have experience with a broad age range of children. I did a PGCE in Primary Education specialising in Modern Foreign Languages in London after doing a BA in Education Studies combined with a BEd in Primary Education specialising in PE. Through both of my courses, I learned a lot about different aspects of learning, child development and the barriers inhibiting children and young people from reaching their potential. This sparked my passion for developing children holistically which has impacted my teaching and lesson planning. I strive to create engaging and varied lessons to ensure the students are interested and independent within their learning. I have worked in many childcare roles and I have worked as an au pair in Spain which allowed me to develop my Spanish language skills. I love sports and physical activity and spent the last year at my school as the PE leader. I am off travelling in October to volunteer in Ghana for 4 months; working to improve the quality of teaching and learning in a primary school.
