I am excited to have recently joined the team at St John’s Meads Primary School. Prior to this I have been teaching for 5 years throughout Kent and East Sussex, across both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. I love visiting new places, both in the UK and abroad, and have spent a lot of time travelling, particularly around Africa.
I am super excited to join the St John’s Meads School community after working in a primary school in St Leonard’s for the past two years, where I taught in Key Stage 1. I am thrilled to be teaching Year 3 and am looking forward to being a part of the children’s journey through their school years and helping them to flourish and grow. I have received such a wonderful warm welcome from the children, parents and staff at St John’s Meads and I already feel so much a part of this very special community and team.
I enjoy all the subjects that I teach but I especially enjoy English, Mathematics, PE and Art. In my spare time I enjoy the gym and fitness classes and challenging myself with charity runs. I love spending time with my family and taking our two very cute dogs for walks across the beautiful South Downs. I love baking sweet treats from cupcakes and cookies to giant celebration cakes, I also love my arts and crafts and always have a knitting or cross stitch project on the go. I very much look forward to sharing my hobbies with the lovely St John’s Meads community and team!
