Mrs Saunders

Class Teacher


When I was at school art was my favourite subject, so when I had to choose a career I wanted to be creative.  I actually always dreamed of being a hairdresser.  However, I decided to train to be a teacher because I didn't want a boring job - every day is different when you're a teacher!


I have taught children from nursery through to Year 6!  Here, at Minterne I love teaching

Year 4.  We learn so much in our different topics, in fact I feel I learn something new when children share their knowledge which I love!


Writing our own production is a huge challenge but it's very rewarding.  The children across Year 4 never let us down and I feel very proud of what we achieve together.  Our learning, skills and even memories set us up for a lifetime!


When I'm not at school I am kept VERY busy with three girls at home.  I enjoy 'retail therapy', cooking and going to see live performances when I get the chance.

Teaching Assistant


I always wanted to work with children.  I worked as a Teaching Assistant for several years in Faversham, gaining a degree in Education, before moving to Sittingbourne.


I have worked with all age groups from Reception to Year 6.  I love working with Year 4, especially the topics we cover.  I coach the girls' football team, but sadly cannot play due to injury.


In my spare time I enjoy cooking and going to the cinema.  I especially enjoy time with my family.
