I have always wanted to be a teacher, so after my two children, Gemma and George, started school, I began a degree with The Open University and started volunteering at Minterne. I love working in Year 5 because Buddhism is one of my favourite topics. Sia is my favourite music artist and I can often be heard singing along the school corridors. My favourite film is Stand By Me and I love reading dystopian fiction, like The Gender Game or classics like, To Kill a Mockingbird. Children in my class know that I really value kindness and I believe that building children’s confidence is key to their learning.
