About Me

I was born in Bristol and have lived here all my life, I live local and quite often bump into families from Redfield Edge at my local supermarket!! I live with my husband Michael and our daughter Natalie who works in insurance. Natalie is an ex pupil and that is what introduced me to working at this lovely community school. When my daughter started in Holly class, I would help once a week voluntarily and found my love for working with children. I returned to college to gain qualification after qualification and have worked as a Teaching Assistant since 1999!!

I am a very positive cheerful person and love my job but just as importantly I love my home life and spending time with my family. I love to bake and my husband is also an amazing baker, he makes fantastic breads and scones. I also like to stay fit and healthy and we love being outdoors especially running and cycling. It’s also great having a grown up daughter as there’s even more clothes and shoes we can swap (and scarves).

Education Philosophy

I believe that children need to be comfortable, engaged and full of enjoyment during their learning experience here at Redfield Edge, and that they leave fully prepared with the appropriate life skills to develop their future further.
