What’s your favourite book?
hmmm, as a child at primary school it was Kasper in The Glitter by Philip Ridley, I also loved the Borrowers and The Worst Witch series too. As an adult ‘The color purple’ Alice Walker and ‘A kind worth killing’ although I don’t find I have much time to read that often. I save it for the summer holidays!
What’s your favourite hobby?
I have lots of interests; all ‘active’ so it’s safe to say I love a physical challenge and love being outside. Exercise is so good for your mental wellbeing so I try to do something every day. I enjoy playing Netball for my team Phoenix A, swimming, walking, running, gardening, weightlifting and Crossfit. I would say currently Crossfit is possibly my favourite hobby as I enjoy getting fit, strong and healthy. I have made great friends and have begun competing in local competitions this year.
What has been your most exciting adventure?
Travelling to Australia and Thailand for around 7 months when I was 19. Gaining my open water scuba diving qualification was great too; the ocean is like another world.
Tell us about a job you did before you were a teacher….
I worked at Booja Booja chocolate factory! Although I was in the office I managed to sample the odd chocolate here and there!
What’s your most inspirational thought?
I often talk to my class about perseverance and determination so this fits quite well with that. Giving something a go, and working hard when things get tough is much better than never trying it to begin with.
