All about me

I am delighted to join the Newton Westpark team as the Reception teacher. I have a passion for early years and love giving young children the tools and confidence to learn and fulfil their full potential. I live with my husband, our daughter and cat named Primrose. I enjoy going to the cinema, theme parks, day trips to the beach and spending time with my family and friends. Up until the age of 16, I went to stage school. I now use my 'singing skills' to teach young children nursery rhymes and songs!
