I have been working with primary school children in various capacities for the past 15 years and have loved every minute of it. Whilst I have predominately taught in years 4 - 6, I spent time working as a relief teacher in the lower years as well.
I believe that lessons need to be taught using a variety of strategies and styles in order to accommodate the diversity of students. There is no magical teaching method that is going to engage all students.
Yet to be added
I have an undergraduate degree in communication studies and English, and a masters degree in primary teaching.
In 2020 I am out of the classroom and spending time as a stay at home mum to my two young children. I still get into a classroom once a week as a volunteer because I just can't stay away!
