I love teaching. Every day is different. I have taught Reception through to Year 7 and I am often asked which year group I prefer. For me, every class is special and each year group brings with it a unique quality. When a child learns something for the first time, no matter how old they are, that is a magical moment.
My two children both came to Maidenbower Junior School and I remain passionate about supporting the school as it becomes the best it can be.
I have been at Maidenbower Junior school since it first opened in 1999, and I have been a school Governor for the whole of my time here as well.
I am currently Deputy Head Teacher and love working at our school. I am in charge of Upper School (Year 5 and 6) and lead on assessment through the school. I am passionate about developing children's sporting opportunities and organise the provision of extra-curricular clubs.
I have worked at Maidenbower Junior School for 13 Years, My role is very varied and no two days are the same, as I am responsible for HR, Finance, IT and Premises.
For fun, I also run a very successful school netball club, which has managed to retain the "High Fives" Netball tournament cup for 7 consecutive years.
This is my sixth year at Maidenbower and I am really enjoying the new challenge of the Special Education Needs Coordinator role. It is great being able to support and work with children, parents and staff from across the school. Being a SENCO is different to being a teacher in class and I am learning new things about Special Needs every day.
