Year 1 Teacher

I have been teaching for 5 years now and despite being new to Lucas Vale as a teacher, I am not new to the wonderful opportunities that it has and still is providing in education. I attended Lucas Vale as a child myself and am delighted to be part of the school that contributed so greatly to my childhood.

I started off my career in teaching in EYFS because I feel that the foundation of a child’s education is paramount to their development and plays an integral role in their future.  I have decided to take my journey on to year 1 as I wanted to see what “life after early years” looked like with the intentions of nurturing their ability through a creative curriculum.

I greatly enjoy teaching, as no two children are the same and children continue to demonstrate their curiosity day to day. I believe children should be encouraged to investigate the world around them and never stop asking questions. I hope that as a teacher I will be able to guide my children to build resilience and develop greater independence, ready for the year ahead.

Sifa Huseyin
Year 1 Teacher

My name is Sifa Huseyin and I am a Year 1 teacher in Bolt class. I have worked at Lucas Vale Primary School since 2011. I started working in the Nursery, and then moved to Reception, followed by Year 2 and now Year 1.

I enjoy working here because we have such lovely children and families as well as fantastic, hard working and dedicated members of staff. The school is like a big family and we all care for one another, helping each other wherever we can.

I hope to inspire the children to reach their full potential and develop a love of learning through an exciting and creative curriculum.
