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.

Carol Sterling
Year 1 Teacher

I became interested in teaching when my daughter was very little. I taught her to read using the Peter and Jane reading books hence by the time she started nursery she could read, write and spell her name. This inspired me to become a teacher.

I gained my degree in Primary education and Early Years at Roehampton University in 2005 and started teaching straight after.

I believe that teaching is like a journey and on this journey there are many different vehicles. Some are going fast and some are going slowly. It’s the same with learning. Some children will speed ahead while others will crawl but at the end the destination is all the same. It’s not how we get there but that we get there. Therefore I try my best to make teaching as enjoyable as possible for children so that it’s a memorable experience that will inspire them to learn and keep on learning.

Further I enjoy teaching because I find it delightful when I see children actually learning and putting into practise what they have learnt. Teaching at Lucas Vale has been an interesting journey for me, one that I am still finding pleasure in.
