Early Years Leader
St Helen’s Primary School is the third school that I have worked in since beginning my teaching career. I have been a teacher at St. Helen’s Primary School now for 3 years, having previously worked at other schools in Hartlepool and Sunderland. My teaching career has been mainly focussed in the Early Years. I am currently the Foundation Stage leader. I have been involved with initiatives to improve the teaching of phonics and have spoken at several conferences. I am passionate about teaching children to read. I am looking forward to further developing the Foundation Stage along with our new 2 year old provision, ‘The Seashells’.
Outside of school my hobbies include spending time with my family, including watching my youngest daughter play football.
