I have worked at Grinling Gibbons for over 20 years. I am proud to be part of such an amazing school and community. The children I work with are all wonderful with a love for learning, and this in itself, makes teaching fun and exciting.

I enjoy coming to work each day, and I myself am always learning new things. This helps me develop as a professional, and I always strive to be a positive role model for the children I care for.
