September 2011.

PE, EAL and DLS teacher. 

What did you do before you came to Bethany?
For the past 10 years I have mainly been a full time Mum. Before that I was Director of Sport at The Abbey School in Reading.

What is your favourite novel/music/artist/film and why?
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. I love the triumph of the human spirit over adversity. Favourite film: Chocolat. Yum yum! Music: Jack Johnson – mellow music with thoughtful lyrics.

The artist Sir Thomas Laurence is one of my ancestors.  Unfortunately I have not inherited any of his talent!

What is your favourite quotation and why?
May you live every day of your life. Because it makes me think about living in the moment and taking every opportunity that comes my way.

What was your favourite subject at school and why?
History, because I have always been fascinated by the past and different interpretations of the same events.

Why do you like working at Bethany?
It is such a friendly, welcoming, accepting place.

What interests do you have outside Bethany?
I enjoy going to the gym and taking part in exercise classes, but I spend most of my free time with my family enjoying being outdoors!

What is your favourite childhood memory?
Playing in the garden on a Sunday afternoon, smelling a roast dinner cooking!

What is your favourite colour and why?
Red because it is bright, strong and positive.

If you were not doing what you are doing now, what would you like to do?
I would like to train as a play therapist to work with young children.
