As a child, I loved to pretend I was a teacher and throughout school, I really enjoyed musical and creative activities. I grew up learning instruments and playing in bands as a teenager! At university, studying music, I volunteered and went into primary schools to do musical workshops and this is where my love for working with children began! After my degree, I worked in different schools as a teaching assistant for 5 years and then began training to be a teacher. I love my job at St John's, working with amazing people and I really enjoy teaching reception, helping children to learn through play! I aim to inspire, just as I was inspired right from reception!

As a child I loved primary school, one of the reasons for this was an amazing teacher who made learning fun and enjoyable and made everyone in her class feel special and valued. I decided from an early age that I wanted to be like that teacher, I stuck with my dream and have never looked back! I feel blessed to be able to come to work every day and hopefully make a difference to the children that I teach and help them achieve their goals just like I did.

When I was younger I had the most inspirational Year 2 teacher and would go home and pretend to be just like her whilst playing schools with my friends. From then I knew I wanted to be a teacher, hopeful to make a difference and encourage children to develop a love of learning, just like I did. I love teaching in the early years, watching the youngest learners grow and flourish as they learn through play, learning something new every day!
