General Information

I began my teaching career in 1984 and have worked at all Primary levels, from a large intermediate school to a small sole-charge school. I joined the Greenmeadows team in 2003 and love working in this environment. I have seen many changes in my time here. Recently our Junior Syndicate has developed Investigative Play as part of our curriculum. I am a firm believer in this teaching pedagogy and enjoy seeing the children engage and grow in confidence while learning in a fun and collaborative way. The children’s learning becomes personalised, based on their interests incorporating literacy and numeracy skills as well as problem solving. In my spare time I enjoy cycling, gardening, craft sewing, reading lots of books, catching up with family and friends.
