I have been the Deputy Head teacher at Southwold School since January 2009 and throughout this time have taught all of the year groups in Key Stage 2, with a substantial period of time spent in Year 6, as well as a two year period as the Acting Head teacher before Mrs Ballance joined the school. I qualified as a teacher in 2001, after completing a four year Bachelor of Education degree, and started my teaching career at a primary school in a small village in Swindon.
At the heart of my philosophy for teaching is an innate belief that all children are capable of success and should be educated in an environment that inspires, stimulates and facilitates their individual talents, enabling personal achievement and fulfilment. This academic year I will be the lead teacher for special educational needs and inclusion (SENCo) at Southwold. I have lived in the local area for all of my life and have two small children aged 3 and 2.
