What makes a good teacher at Dunannie?

Energy, inspiration, flexibility and a genuine love of working with children.

What are you trying to encourage and instil in your pupils?

A love of learning; an inquisitive mind; and respect and empathy for one another.

Apart from your teaching role, what else do you get involved with at the school? 

At the moment, I am throwing myself into every possible aspect of life at Dunannie and Bedales as a whole.

In your opinion, what makes Dunannie special?

The open, supportive and positive relationships which exist between children, parents and teachers; and the celebration of the individual.

Who or what inspires you?

The children.

Tell us something not a lot of people know about you.

I went to Froebel to emulate someone I greatly admired at eight years old...my Brown Owl!
