Amy Russell – EYFS Teacher in Sealions Class & PSHE/Behaviour Leader

I am in my third year of teaching at Roselands and I feel incredibly lucky to be working in EYFS. I have always wanted to work in an infant school as I enjoy creating fun learning opportunities and promoting a love of learning in young children.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading and playing the piano. I also enjoy attending church and spending time with my family.

I am really enjoying being the teacher of Sealions Class.

Yvonne Woolley – Year 2 Teacher in Panthers Class

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.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, swimming and going to the theatre.
