I am a Year two class teacher and the Maths coordinator at Roselands. I joined the Roselands team in 2015. Prior to that at I was at my previous school for nine years, working in years one, two, three and six.

My introduction and involvement in education, like so many mums began when I helped as a parent volunteer in my son’s class. I enjoyed it so much that when the opportunity arose I became a classroom assistant, for twelve years. Then when my son moved to senior school I made the decision to further my own education and take a degree in Primary Education Studies. I had always aspired to being a teacher and it is a decision I have never regretted.

I feel honoured to work in the rich and caring learning environment that Roselands provides for the children in its care. It is also wonderful to work with such an inspiring and supportive team of colleagues who have a shared passion for learning.
