About Your Teacher
This is my 9th year of teaching at Michael Drayton Junior School, having previously worked at other schools in Coventry and Nuneaton. In this time, I have taught classes in all years from 3-6 and fulfilled the role of Subject Leader for Art and Design for the majority of this period.
As well as Art, I love teaching writing and maths, but possibly my favourite thing to do is to read with the class and unravel a good novel. I enjoy listening to audiobooks on long dog walks, drawing and playing board games with my family. I’m also a big football fan – both playing recreationally (though my knees tend to disagree) and watching Arsenal men’s and women’s teams (though my blood pressure tends to disagree).
My hopes for the year ahead for 5SW are that by the end of the year, each of my pupils will believe me when I tell them how wonderful I think they are. I hope they will feel confidence in meeting their challenges, satisfaction in how hard they’ve worked and pride in how far they have come. I suspect, though, most of all, come the end of July, that I will simply hope I get the chance to teach them again!
