About Your Teacher
Hello. I’m Mrs. Stretton. I began teaching at Michael Drayton in 2004 as a newly qualified teacher and I’ve loved developing my practice and being a part of children’s progress through our school over the last 19 years.
I particularly enjoy teaching in Year 3, watching our youngest pupils grow in confidence and independence whilst learning the Michael Drayton Way. In this year group, children show huge progress, not just academically, but also socially and emotionally and it’s a real pleasure to watch them develop during their time at Michael Drayton. I pride myself on helping children (and their parents) to settle at our school, through being approachable and listening to their worries and needs.
I have a particular passion for Music and the Performing Arts and I’m proud to work at a school that holds creativity and expression in such high regard.
My hopes for this year are similar to any other year: for the children in my class to be ready to move on to Year 4 as happy, confident, articulate individuals, with a love of learning and a curiosity about the world around them. I hope we will have lots of fun along the way!
