I studied to become a teacher after completing an Early Years and Education Studies degree in 2013. With 2 small children, I was able to gain a 1st class degree which I hold as one of my proudest achievements to date.
My final teaching placement was at Oatlands Infant School in Early Years. Once I arrived at the school I was welcomed with open arms and knew it was a team I wanted to become a part of.
Since then I have worked in all other year groups gaining lots of experience. This provided me with the opportunity to become a Key Stage 1 Moderator, where I am able to visit other schools within the area. I am also the EYFS Lead, Maths Lead, Staff Governor and School Council Representative.
Outside of school I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and daughters, both of whom have attended Oatlands Infant School and have had a fantastic start to their education.
I studied to become a teacher at Manchester Metropolitan University. Once qualified, I taught at a primary school where I led English and Key Stage One. In September 2018, I moved to Oatlands Infant School to become the Deputy Headteacher.
Out of school I enjoy exploring new places with my fiancé, meeting up with family and friends and going for long country walks.
Originally from West Yorkshire, I graduated from Durham University in 2016 with a degree in Primary Education. I then taught in Leeds for 5 years where I found my love for the Early Years.
Outside of school, my wife and I love going on adventures with our dog Sonny, seeing musicals at the theatre, and taking on creative projects. I also enjoy yoga, dance, and a good book in my spare time!
I am originally from Tenerife, Spain. I obtained my degree in English and Literature at Universidad de La Laguna (University of La Laguna). I moved to the UK in 2010 when I started to work as a Spanish language assistant at a couple of high schools in Harrogate. I have also worked as a Spanish tutor. Later on, I completed my teaching assistant qualification and I have also worked as a midday supervisor.
I am married and we have two children who currently attend Oatlands Infants and Oatlands Juniors School. We also have a dog called Cusco.
I have always worked with children. I started by working in nurseries with mainly preschool children for nine years before becoming a nanny for seven years. I love working with children and seeing them develop, learn and become their own unique individuals.
I have two boys aged 4 and 11 so home is very busy! We love going on walks and for picnics. I also love cooking and am a keen quizzer!
Since leaving school I have always worked in childcare and have experience of working with children from birth to 10. I have worked in a range of settings including being a private carer, nurseries, mainstream and special schools. I have my level three qualification in SEN Teaching Assistant and a Certificate of Higher Education in Childhood and Youth Studies.
Outside school I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. You can often find me on a long walk with my son and my dog, Louis.
