I am a Teaching  Assistant and have been for over 20 years. As well as teaching phonics, I currently work in year 3 at Mount  Street. 

I am a very proud mum to three boys; I feel this has helped me build a great rapport with the children I work with. 

I have a Btec national diploma in early years, but I am also studying at university where I hope to complete  a foundation degree so I can fulfil  my passion to teach. I have had the privilege to work across all age groups also working lunch times and running breakfast and holiday clubs. I currently coach the school football teams along with Morgan Friend and James Coker and oversee the organisation of lunchtime rotas and activities.

Currently I am the SEND Champion Governor.

I was elected to join the schools Governing board in 2022 and l am currently the governor responsible for the Early Years provision in the school. As someone with an interest in supporting children’s development and wellbeing and with my experience of working in Early Years I feel I bring relevant knowledge and experience to this position. I want to work with school staff, families, other governing board members and the wider school community to support Mount Street to be a successful and caring school.
