What’s the best part of your job?

Being with the children on their learning journey and seeing their awe and wonder when they discover new things.

If you weren’t a teacher, what would you be doing now?

I think I might have been a school librarian as I have always been an avid reader.

What’s your most memorable moment as a teacher?

Too many to choose one but seeing children begin to read and develop a love of learning makes each day memorable.

How would you like to be remembered by your pupils?

As a teacher who is loving and caring and makes learning fun.
