What is your role?
I am the lead teacher in the Nursery classroom at Ivy Academy. Working with the two year olds is a very important job as this is most of the children’s first school experience. It is my job to make sure that their first experience is a happy and beneficial one. I work with my team to create a positive and nurturing environment for the children with a solid curriculum.

What do you like about working at Ivy?
I have a really great team which makes it easy to enjoy going to work each day. I like that Ivy Academy is a small school and that it feels like one big happy family. Everybody is always willing to lend a hand and help out in all sorts of situations. Ivy is a friendly and happy place to work. Ivy is also very multicultural and it is wonderful to have children from all different walks of life.
