Secondary English Grammar, English

After graduating from my degree in American Studies, I worked in Mexico and the USA for a few years before returning to the UK and starting my teaching journey. I am currently working as an English teacher in Norfolk and the best part of my job is being able to share my enthusiasm for the subject with students. I love reading, I like running, and I have a love/hate relationship with writing.

Primary English Grammar, English

My name is Mrs Smart and I am a deputy headteacher at a primary school in Notting Hill. After studying at the University of Southampton, I trained to be a teacher in central London and I’ve never left! I’ve taught lots of different year groups and even get to deliver NQT and CPD courses for other teachers now as well. I love reading and sharing my passion for literature with children. When I haven’t got my nose in a book, you might find me baking in my kitchen or roaming around Richmond Park.

I am currently an intervention teacher and work across all year groups in my school in London. My favourite part of my job is that I get to work with children and adults from all around the world. I love travelling and learning about other cultures!

Primary English Grammar, English

I am currently an assistant headteacher and SENDCo at an outstanding school in West London. I have taught across the school in my 10+ years of teaching. Before being a teacher, I grew up in London, studied anthropology and made documentaries for television. Naturally, therefore, I love travelling, stories and learning about different places and people. I also love supporting children, teachers and parents, who need a great range of support, so that everyone can reach their potential.
