In my spare time, I enjoy lots of family time, cooking and cycling.
Year 1 Teacher
I started my teaching career at New Oak in 2021 and have now taught across both key stages. I love the outdoors and whether that is at school, in our forest school area, or at home walking the dog, you will always find me eager to be in nature.
Year 2 Teacher & Phase Leader
I am the phase leader of KS1 and EYFS, I am also reading lead and work across Oasis, as a phonics National Lead Practitioner.
I absolutely love reading and try to ignite the passion of reading into every child at New Oak. You will always find me reading or book swapping around the academy!

During half terms, I like to go on adventures, read and spend time with family and friends.
Year 5 Teacher
I have been a part of the New Oak family for 5 years. Before joining, I spent some time teaching in the surrounding areas of Bristol and the Middle East.
