I am 31 years old and I graduated from Staffordshire University with a degree in English Literature & Journalism in 2008. I then completed my PGCE at Manchester Met Uni in 2012 and have been teaching ever since. I live with my husband and our cocker spaniel Bailey. I love books, writing, travel and can be found walking in the peak district at the weekend!
I love my job and I'm passionate about teaching children! I feel its important to have an approach that not only suits them and their style of learning but also allows them to make the progress required. The 2014 curriculum can be a tricky thing to get your head around and sometimes a little extra help is needed.
A KS1 teacher for 5 years and I have been teaching Year 1 for 4 of them. In Year 1, a lot of our focus is on Phonics and learning to read so I have plenty of experience in this area. Despite being a KS1 teacher, I have previous experience in Y2 and Y4 and a good understanding of KS1 & 2 SATS. I also have experience in special needs, working with children with autism in particular.
After an initial discussion with parents and the pupil and an informal assessment to check where the student is at in terms of their learning, I would then develop a long term plan to meet the needs of the pupil. My approach to teaching is enjoyable, rewarding and I would ensure it fits in with my students style of learning as no two children are the same.
I am a positive and friendly person and I try to create a positive, engaging approach to learning, whatever the subject!
