- Do you have a personal message for students?

I started teaching later in life after doing a variety of jobs, mainly secretarial and have always loved teaching. The most important aspect of the job to me is building a relationship with my pupils built on mutual respect, instilling confidence and ensuring that my pupils are happy and secure as this is the key to learning success. I am a calm, methodical and very organised teacher and like to encourage parental involvement in a child's progress (at whatever level the parent is comfortable with). I am hugely experienced in assessing and target setting to NC levels but still like to make learning fun and interesting where possible.
