Life before Longacre
I have worked in several day care nurseries in the pre-school and 2-3 year old classrooms as both a Room Leader and a Senior Nursery Nurse. I also worked as a nanny to a one year old. I really enjoyed working in day care and building strong relationships with parents and children as well as watching the children develop through the Early Years curriculum.
Roles at School
I am Head of Pre-Prep Drama and solely teach Drama to Forms I and II. I also direct the Christmas Nativity, putting on a production with all the children within the Pre-Prep department. This includes children from Nursery right the way through to Year 2 which I enjoy immensely! I am also a Teaching Assistant in Form II which is great fun as well as House Captain of Waterloo, the greatest house of course! On Mondays I run a Street Dance & Ballet Club after school and on Tuesday lunchtimes I run Storm Stompers, another dance club that encourages children to explore many different dance styles. As well as all of the above, I also help with After School Care two evenings a week.
Away from the Classroom
I am currently completing a full time degree with the Open University in Primary Education. I am in my final year of study and hope to complete my PGCE next year. I am a keen amateur dramatics thespian and have been in many productions in a variety of roles with the Godalming Theatre Group. At the weekends I love nothing more than walking my beautiful ‘Wowzer’ Rocky.
