What I enjoy about my job
I love trying to figure out different ways of helping children learn. If they don’t understand something, then it’s up to me to help make it happen. I love the way children look at the world in their own unique way. We can learn so much from them. I consider it a privilege to work at Beech Lodge School because everyone has the time and ‘elbow room’ to explore all avenues of learning. A teacher’s dream school!
Who or what inspires me
Everything and everyone inspires me – sunsets, sunrises, spring flowers, the warmth of the sun, peoples’ thoughts, ideas, viewpoints, actions, beliefs, humour – young and old. I never stop wanting to learn and wonder and know.
Little known fact about me
I always wanted to own an old British motorbike. My dad had motorbikes and I used ride on the back with him when I was little. I passed my test and bought a BSA Starfire 250cc called Basil. I no longer have him but I do have lots of happy memories of my adventures with Basil.
