I grew up in North London and moved to Sussex with my family approximately 15 years ago. I have been a parent governor at a school in Bexhill-on-Sea and was a staff governor at my previous school.

I enjoy running, reading and crafting.

Having previously taught in two other East Sussex primary schools and across key stage one and two I have always been impressed with the warm and welcoming nature of St John's Meads. As I begin my third year I have the privilege of teaching Year 5, which I am greatly looking forward to.

Additionally, I have taken on the role of English lead as well as continuing to lead History and Philosophy and co-ordinating trips and events. These are all subjects which I am passionate about and I'm looking forward to continuing to develop these areas; building on pupils' interests throughout the school and ensuring that all pupils' have the best possible exposure to an engaging and creative curriculum. I believe that foundation subjects, as well as core subjects, are crucial when developing lifelong learners and allowing children to develop and realise their potential.

I have been at St John’s Meads for five years now, teaching in both Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. It is a fantastic place to work, with enthusiastic staff and children who love to learn.

This year I will be Art & Design and Geography co-ordinator, promoting creativity and outdoor learning opportunities for all children within the school. We have the wonderful beach and downs just around the corner.

In my free time, I enjoy running, watching football and baking sweet treats!

I am currently in my fifth year of teaching at St. Johns, having had the privilege of being a previous pupil, a student teacher and an NQT. I am very fortunate to work in such a wonderful school, where the children are encouraged and inspired to be the best they can be. I have very fond special memories of my time as a pupil and would love for the children I teach to look back and have the same. St. Johns offers exciting and creative learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom. In Reception we love to use our outdoor area when learning and exploring and we are very lucky to be able to use the surrounding areas of the beach and downs too! I look forward to another fantastic year at St Johns.

Having recently just completed my teacher training at The University of Chichester and I am very excited to join the team at St John’s Meads this year as the new Year 1 teacher.

I am looking forward to getting to know the school community and to help the children flourish in their learning and as people. My favourite subjects are Science and Drama, and I enjoy incorporating the active aspect of these subjects into my teaching. I have also performed in a number of pantomimes throughout the years, I feel this has influenced my style of teaching as I like to make learning fun and exciting.

In my free time I enjoy going to concerts and the cinema. My favourite animal is a sloth, hence why our class mascot is Sid the sloth!

I am excited and privileged to take on the role of Year 6 teacher as the class move into the final part of their journey through the school.

After teaching in London for six years, I moved back to Sussex and feel honoured to have joined the friendly and welcoming team at St John's. I am particularly looking forward to sharing my enjoyment and enthusiasm for mathematics as Subject Leader for this subject.

In my spare time I enjoy playing netball, running and reading.

I am very much looking forward to joining the team at St John’s Meads this year and supporting the year 4 children in their learning.

My teaching career started in the London Borough of Bexley where I spent 8 years working at the same primary school that I attended as a child. Whilst there, I was able to develop my interest in drama, working with the children to produce several amazing school productions including Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

I have a passion for travel and learning about different cultures and have recently been fortunate enough to teach the National Curriculum in an international setting in Abu Dhabi.

I enjoy art and design technology and can’t wait to be creative with the class. We are going to have lots of fun while we learn.
