I have been a teacher at Wheatcroft for over ten years and currently teach Year 6. I am part of the Senior Leadership Team, leading both Upper Key Stage 2 and English; I am also the school’s current Data Protection Officer. I am proud to work at Wheatcroft because we have wonderful children and a really dedicated staff team; I particularly like how everyone works together to support one another to provide the best opportunities for our families. Therefore, the decision to become a governor and help to move the school forward was an extremely easy one.
As well as leading English, my passions are Computing and using technology in the classroom and also the teaching of foreign languages at primary level; my degree was in Education Studies and German and I spent a year in Berlin as part of this.
Outside school, I enjoy cooking, live music and keeping up with the latest technology.
