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 realise and achieve their creative, social and emotional potential.

I live in Manchester, UK, and love my city. I enjoy reading, watching TV, going to the theater or cinema and socializing. I have a passion for my soccer team - Manchester City FC - and usually enjoy the ups and downs of the soccer season!
