Alanah Harris

Alanah Harris

Primary Art & Design, Science, Geography, Religious Education, History

Miss Harris is no ordinary teacher - I am secretly a chameleon and can change into anything I want to be. I can be a wizard in Maths, an explorer in Geography or even better, a super hero in PE. After studying Physical and Sport Education at St Mary’s University in London, I became a teacher to share my love for learning. I teach all lessons in Primary to some wonderful children at a school in London. In my spare time, I am a dedicated runner and can often be seen running around royal London parks like Bushy Park. I am fond of going to the gym, reading and yoga.

Señorita Woodburn

Señorita Woodburn

Secondary Spanish

¡Hola! My name is Señorita Woodburn and I am a Spanish teacher based in the Midlands. I work with secondary and sixth form students aged between 11-18. I love teaching languages because it allows students to develop their problem solving skills, learn about a whole new culture and provides them with a useful skill to be able to communicate with people from different countries. In many ways, it broadens their horizons. Enjoy your lessons here at Oak! ¡Gracias!

Secondary Maths

I work at Trinity Academy Halifax, home of White Rose Maths. I am lucky to be teaching in a phenomenal department that has helped me grow to be the best teacher I can be. I left school with no formal maths qualifications and only studied maths later on in life. Finding maths changed my life. If you can find something you love it will change your life too . . . that’s why I teach.

Bethan Jones

Bethan Jones

Secondary Maths

I am currently the Deputy Head of Maths in a secondary school in West London. My favourite part about teaching maths is when my students get that ’’eureka’’ moment and enjoyment from finding a solution, where I can see their confidence in my subject grow! When I’m not teaching I love to sing in my a cappella group and play netball.

Primary English Spelling

I work in KS2 in a primary school in London. I really enjoy that I get to teach all subjects to the pupils and the variety that this brings. My favourite part of my job is my interactions with the children as they are so unpredictable, provide many moments of laughter and I enjoy seeing them progress throughout the year.

Clare Richards

Clare Richards

Primary English Spelling

Hello, I’m Clare. I am the Lead Assistant Head at a large primary in London and I have a passion for school improvement and for English in particular. I attended Durham University and then experienced teaching abroad before deciding that engaging in learning with children and teachers was the most fun way to spend my working week! I have worked as an SLE in English and have written and delivered NQT and CPD training across London. I love reading and writing and I love stories. 

Miss Saab

Miss Saab

Primary English

I am currently a KS2 teacher in a primary school in London. I have previously taught in KS1. I am also the MFL and EAL lead at my school and I love getting pupils as excited as I am about language learning. Before becoming a teacher, I was a secondary school science technician. I also worked as a 1:1 special educational needs and disabilities teaching assistant for three years and I supported secondary, primary and EYFS pupils with a range of needs. I am looking forward to teaching you English!

Miss Parnham

Miss Parnham

Secondary Maths

I have taught maths to 11-16 year old students in South and West Yorkshire for 20 years. The best part of my job is sharing my passion for my subject and helping young people to enjoy mathematics and all that it has to offer.

Jonny Sellin

Jonny Sellin

Secondary History

I teach history in a village school in the East of England, and enjoy nothing more than telling a good story from the past. One of my goals as a teacher is to help young people gain a greater insight into medieval history; an interest that probably stems from childhood years visiting museums and delighting in the dressing-up box.

Primary Art & Design

I am an artist and a teacher, working in East Kent. I live and work 5 minutes from the beach, and it influences my art work enormously. I mostly paint, looking at the forms of the sea, but often incorporate printed or collaged elements too. I teach art and creative topic projects in two schools each week, working with children aged 6-11.
