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.
