Deputy Head and Reception Teacher, Dunannie

BA (QTS) Primary, Dance (3 - 8 range)

What makes a good teacher at Dunannie?

Creativity, flexibility, the ability to work as part of a team and a sense of humour!

What are you trying to encourage and instil in the children?

I have the privilege of teaching the children at the very beginning of their education.  I love to see them grow in confidence and independence as they take those first important steps in their school life. 

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

As well as teaching the Reception class at Dunannie, I also teach Dance and Drama one afternoon a week.  I  love the opportunity to encourage the children to dance.  It is wonderful to see them perform in one of our fantastic school plays.  

In your opinion, what makes Dunannie special?

Bedales is special because it is a pleasure to come to work each day. 

Who or what inspires you?

Kindness in others.

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

I love Park Run and new shoes but everyone at Dunannie knows that!
