I completed a BA Hons degree in Sports Development and Coaching at Newcastle. After completing this I traveled for a year, visiting North and South America, New Zealand, Fiji and Australia.  I completed a PGCE in Manchester in 2010, securing my first job as a Year 3 class teacher and the teacher of girls games at Barnard Castle Preparatory school in County Durham. I worked in Year 3 for 4 years and then moved to Year 1 and became KS1 Curriculum leader, where I gained valuable experience and insights. I moved to Derbyshire with my husband and worked at Ravensdale Infant and Nursery as Year 1 teacher.

I am enthusiastic, hard working, very approachable and I am sure my sporting background can be put to good use at St Wystan’s. My creativity is a personal strength of mine and I love to share this with the children.
