Year 1 Team
Year 1 Class Teacher
I joined Westlands First School in January 2018 so I am relatively new to the school. I am really excited about the coming year in Year 1, as we have exciting topics for the children to enjoy, and I can’t wait to teach them!
Prior to working at Westlands, I taught in Year 2 at Crabbs Cross Academy, Redditch, for two years and in Years 3 and 4 for 3 years. I have also taught in a school in Worcester for five years, where I was fortunate enough to teach in all year groups up to and including Year 6. Prior to that, I taught in a school in Kidderminster and in Birmingham, each for a year.
I moved to Worcestershire from Birmingham twenty years ago to undertake my degree in English and Art at Worcester University. I then completed a PGCE Primary at Newman University so I could become a primary school teacher. Since then I have been privileged enough to teach in a variety of schools and in a range of year groups, which has enabled me to develop my teaching skills.
I have a son who recently started university in Swansea so I look forward to the times when he comes home and we can spend time together. In my spare time, I enjoy going to pilates, rock climbing (indoor and outdoor) and spending time with my friends. I love crafts, sewing, DIY and gardening.
