I have been a part-time teacher at Great Gidding C of E Primary School for over ten years and it’s a great place to be! I have worked with children of all ages over the years, enjoying the learning we do in each class. Each day is different, with new experiences and lots of smiles.
As well as class teaching, I have responsibility for R.E. and Collective Worship.
When I’m not in school, I enjoy long (usually muddy) walks in the countryside with my family and our Dalmatian dog.
