Job Title: Class teacher - Year 4
Role & Responsibility:
P.E Subject Leader
MFL French Leader
I have been married since 1997 and have 2 daughters aged 17 and 13, both attended Redfield Edge PS.
We are a very active family enjoying walking our dog Eddie and cycling. We also love our family holidays and spending quality time together. Our other pets include 2 Cats, a pond full of Goldfish and a Snake!
I have been teaching for 18 years although I took a break from the classroom in order to bring up my own children. During that time I tutored children privately at their homes.
I began working at Redfield Edge in 2008; I have worked within many classes in KS2 but predominately in year 3.
I firmly believe that a teacher should remain consistent throughout, remaining approachable and project a sense of humour and a positive attitude. I hope my enthusiasm is conveyed to the children in turn making their learning more enjoyable.
I know that every classroom consists of individuals that vary not only in ability, but also in learning styles. I aim to give each child the tools with which to be successful and achieve their full potential; helping children to develop by believing in them as capable individuals.
I am responsible for planning and teaching to the needs of each child so that all learners can feel successful. A curriculum that involves the interests of the children and makes learning relevant to life is essential.
I know the importance of creating a secure and supportive classroom climate where children are encouraged to take increasing responsibility for their own learning and so in turn become confident and enthusiastic learners.
