Understanding and passionate educator with over 10 years experience
Currently, I am working as a supply teacher across primary schools in Yarm after recently relocating to the area. I qualified as a teacher 6 years ago and have specifically taught in years 3 and 4. I proudly accepted a teaching award at my graduation. In 2019, I completed an MA in Education where I focused on outdoor learning in the primary setting.
In my last full time position, I was recognised as an outstanding practitioner by the senior leadership team. This led to me being selected to complete the outstanding teacher programme (something I am incredibly proud of).
For the past 4 years, I have trained and mentored new teachers entering the profession.
As a teacher, I recognise the importance of building strong relationships with students so that I can plan and deliver sessions to motivate and engage. I believe positive praise helps foster a love for learning and develops confidence.
In sessions, I model tasks and use concrete resources as an effective way to move through the learning process and into ‘deeper learning’.
