I qualified as a Primary school teacher in 2018 and moved to Bristol to begin my first year teaching in a Year Six class. I am excited to move back to Torbay and begin my second year of teaching in Year Four at Shiphay Learning Academy.

I completed a three-year degree in Education Studies, followed by a PGCE specialising in Science. I have an interest in the outdoors, Forest Schools and Science. I strive to ensure that my classroom is always vibrant and inviting, making sure that the children in my class have a warm and welcoming environment to work in. I believe in a broad and rich curriculum, in order to give all children an opportunity to excel and show their talents and interests. My aim is to make children feel inspired in every lesson, as well as feeling a sense of achievement in what they have completed.

Outside of school, I can often be found spending time with friends and family, cooking and going for long walks. I also spend time exercising and enjoy taking part in several active classes. I have a keen interest in travelling and exploring new places.

I look forward to beginning an exciting, new year in Year Four.

I have been a class teacher at Shiphay Learning Academy for three years, since I qualified in 2016. I have taught in Year 2 and Year 3 and I am excited to continue teaching in Year 3 this year. As an aspiring teacher of Primary education, I have done my utmost to fill my life with experiences to assist me in developing the relevant knowledge and skills required to be an outstanding teacher. Due to this commitment of lifelong learning, I am now Team Leader of Middle School and am extremely excited to begin this new role. I have a strong founded belief that learning should evoke excitement, wonder and joy and I believe that it is the role of all teachers to stimulate such a response.

My main specialist subject with my teaching degree was PE and I am the Academy’s Sports Champion. I recently ensured Shiphay was awarded a Gold School Games Mark and have actively promoted the Golden Mile initiative across the school. Throughout the year I will be ensuring that children have access to after-school clubs, competitions and a fulfilling PE curriculum every term. I have a real desire to use outside space, when possible, to allow children to learn actively and creatively.

Within my classroom, I aim to promote Aspiration at all times, to ensure that children are inspired to learn and to reach their fullest potential. During Year 3, I will be developing the children’s independence.  I take great pride in providing the children with the tools they need in order to develop their skills to become independent learners. In Kingfisher. I will often remind the children that it is good to fail because FAIL stands for First Attempt in Learning and it is important to take risks and make mistakes to allow learning to become embedded.

I am very excited to start my fourth academic year at Shiphay Learning Academy, especially as Team Leader, where I know that the year will be full of positive learning.
