Teaching Assistant Year 6

I have been working at Grinling Gibbons Primary School for 17 years, and this is the school that my children attended, as well as the school where I came as a child. This is why I love working here – it’s more like home to me!

Over the years, I have had many roles including lunch-time support, cleaner and teaching assistant, but whatever it is I’m doing, I really enjoy working with the children.

Additional Role

 

Joining Grinling Gibbons in September 2017, I immediately felt welcomed into the school community. Both the children and adults in our school have a great enthusiasm for learning, as well as a sense of mutual respect and kindness. I am particularly pleased to be in Year 6, as it’s amazing to see the children mature over the year into confident, resilient and independent learners who are ready for secondary school.

What motivates me as a teacher is seeing children achieve new things and take pride in their successes – whether that be in sports, arts, extra-curricular activities or our core subjects, English and maths. As maths leader, my role is to ensure our children have an engaging maths curriculum that challenges every learner, as well as teaches them the skills they will need for adult life.
