I joined Lucas Vale in January 2018. The first impression I gained of the school was the children’s love of learning. I knew from that moment that this was the school for me. I am proud to say that I am now a member of the hardworking and dedicated staff at Lucas Vale.

Prior to joining Lucas Vale, I was teaching in the United Arab Emirates. It was here that I learnt no matter the barrier, every child is capable of learning and making progress. I enjoy teaching children how to become independent learners and watching them progress naturally. Within my classroom I encourage children to become problem solvers, mistake makers and open minded learners.

I look forward to building positive relationships with the school community and giving the next generation the best possible education they could receive.

Additional Roles

 

I have worked at Lucas Vale since September 2017 and am excited every day to come to school and learn with the children. I enjoy working here because

As a Year 5 teacher, I am working hard with the pupils to ensure that they are prepared and ready for their SATs year in 2018-19

I am also very pleased to be leading on PE and Sport, as I believe that both, if done regularly, are extremely important in giving pupils the right mindset to take them on their journey through life.
