My Journey Through Education
I really enjoyed primary education and attended a school in Great Linford. My favourite subject was English and I loved to read and write. I have lots of wonderful memories from this school.
I moved on to The Radcliffe School in Wolverton for my secondary education, during this time I found I had a passion for drama and this particular lesson helped to build my confidence. I soon decided I would like to be a teacher and work with young children. I found out what qualifications I needed and started to work super hard. I was incredibly focused and studied well for my GCSEs.
I moved to Stantonbury Campus 6th form after my GCSEs to study Performing Arts. I had the best two years of my life here and gained so much confidence during this time. I made wonderful friends at Stantonbury who are still part of my life to this day.
I then attended MK College to study Early Years Education. Although this was hard work it prepared me well for university. Following college I attended UCN to study Early Years Education at degree level. This was an amazing course and I learnt so much. On completion of my degree I spent a year in London studying for a PGCE.
I came home to Milton Keynes as a qualified teacher and have worked in various different schools in the area. I have been teaching now for 14 years and cannot imagine doing anything else. It is definitely the perfect job for me.
What Shepherdswell Means to Me
I joined Shepherdswell in September 2018. I had worked as a supply teacher in Year One the previous term and completely fell in love with the school. When the opportunity came up to work at Shepherdswell for an entire year I was super excited!
I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know the children and staff here and already feel part of the family. I love the ethos of the school and how all the children are at the centre of all that we do. Working in such a caring and supportive environment has helped me to fit in quickly and inspired me as a teacher. I am looking forward to continuing my career as a teacher at Shepherdswell Academy.
