I have been teaching at Shiphay since I qualified in 2005. In the 13 years I have been at the school I have enjoyed teaching in Nursery, Reception, and Year 1 and, for the past four years, in Year 2. I have really enjoyed seeing how children develop throughout this learning journey both socially and academically.I am Shiphay’s Handwriting Champion and am delighted to see how introducing a joined up script throughout the school from the very roots has had a really positive impact on presentation and spelling. I strive to provide a learning environment where children feel valued, inspired to learn and motivated, in order to reach their fullest potential. I believe it is important to allow children to explore within their learning and to provide them with opportunities to share their talents and skills. I thoroughly enjoy teaching Year 2 and love to see how the children are willing to tackle any challenge, learning from their mistakes and taking great pride in their achievements. I am a strong believer in the importance of working in partnership and welcome communication with parents and carers in order to ensure each child has their individual needs met. I look forward to another great year of learning in Year 2.

I first began my Shiphay journey as a teaching assistant last year in July and have thoroughly enjoyed my first few months here. Since studying my degree in Working with Children and Young People in 2012, I have worked in various settings within this field ranging in age from nursery care to youth work. From this, I have discovered that supporting and encouraging children to reach their full potential as individuals is my passion. Each child should have an opportunity and an environment that allows them the chance to discover who they are and what they can do. My aim is to ensure that I help to create a setting that can provide this through having a calm, patient and positive attitude, recognising different learning styles and giving the time.
Naturally, my main subject interests are English and P.E, with a personal interest in lots of reading and exercise (particularly netball!). I believe these areas of the curriculum can help towards creating a healthy mind-body, feel good attitude- a great learning foundation to build on.
I am excited to continue my journey at Shiphay and look forward to what the future may hold.
