MY TEACHING STYLE

I love my subject and hope my enjoyment is contagious! I believe that drama is a great tool for learning but also for developing the whole person. I set boundaries and expectations but, within those, anything goes! I won't tolerate a lack of respect for self, for others and for teachers and try to encourage children to show that respect. I love to enable children to achieve their potential.
