I have been teaching in primary schools for nearly 20 years in which I have taught across the age ranges. Teaching is an endlessly fascinating and rewarding profession which continues to challenge and engage me. My original degree was in Art History, after which I completed a PGCE. I am a trained SENDCO and have been Head of School at Blackawton and now at East Allington schools. I enjoy teaching the range of subjects we offer in primary schools but History is my passion and I have for several years trained teachers in this subject as part of the SCITT teacher training program.
I believe teachers in primary schools have the opportunity, duty and privilege to open doors, ignite interests and enable children to, in the words of the great Roald Dahl; ‘Be the best you can be.’ – that’s what we strive for every day at East Allington.
