I live in England and work in a primary school. I have been a teacher for 12 years and have had the opportunity to teach in all the different year groups up to age 11. For many years I have taught the age range 5 to 6. I have really enjoyed the creativity that comes with teaching younger children. Their enthusiasm to learn and the progress they make is truly a delight. I never cease to be amazed by what they can achieve! However, more recently I have had the opportunity to work with older children and have found their work ethic to be quite inspiring. Their thirst for knowledge and ability to become so absorbed in a topic is great to be apart of.
Good behavior in the classroom is the key to teaching successfully. Positive praise works wonderfully well, as does high expectations of all of your students. I absolutely want the children to be engaged and enthused by the learning that takes place each day in the classroom. It is up to us to ignite that interest through wonderfully planned and prepared lessons. Sharing materials with one another is equally a wonderful way to keep our own passion for teaching alive and kicking!!
Bachelor of arts degree from Leeds University in England.
I have a BA Honours degree in History with a qualified teachers status from Leeds University, England.
I live in a village setting where I enjoy going for walks with my dogs and two children. I am a dedicated soccer mum, attending training and matches each weekend. I recently set up my own website with my husband, and we are enjoying being creative with teacher and parent resources. www.teacherstation.co.uk
