Meet our 3 Drama teachers
I teach Drama at secondary school to students aged 11-18. I love Drama and the potential it has to develop a student’s confidence, social skills and empathy. I love directing plays and musicals with students I teach, and enjoy reading plays and going to the theatre. I am also a freelance education consultant and work with theatre companies to develop resources for schools.
I am currently leading Drama in a large primary school in Newham. I initially trained as a Drama teacher via a GTP route and worked my way to becoming Head of Performing Arts at an inner London secondary school. After I had my first child I opted for a change and was fortunate to find a Primary school that would let me create a drama curriculum. As well as being a mum and a teacher I run my own business as a freelance Drama specialist, which I hope to build on after the pandemic.
