Time at Airthrie: 06/09/2010 (7 years ago)
Qualifications: PGCE (Glos)
Specialist Subjects: Specialist Art
I joined Airthrie in September 2010 as a full-time teacher, working across the whole primary age range. I have been involved with every age group and most subjects at some point, initially with emphasis on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Art.
I have an academic background in Art having studied Foundation Studies in Art & Design (BTEC Diploma) and subsequently Textile Design and Design Management (BSc Hons) in a previous life!
Having had a varied employment history covering retail distribution and stock control through to wedding and events management I took the opportunity to retrain and become a teacher.
I relish the challenge of teaching and thoroughly enjoy being a Year 6 Form Teacher, making learning fun and seeing the children develop both academically and socially.
In addition, I run Airthrie's after-school Art Clubs and I am the Forest Leader for Kielder Forest.
