I am the Learning Mentor at Brightside Nursery & Infant School. I joined the team in January 2017. My role is to support children to ensure they are ready to learn and help them deal with any issues they may have. I also organise the family learning that takes place at Brightside and engage parents in school life. I work with the children to organise the school council.
Before I came to Brightside, I was a Children’s Centre Coordinator in Chesterfield and was also a governor at one of the schools there. I enjoy being a governor and jumped at the chance to join the Brightside Governing Body as I like being involved in the decision making process for school and I hope to bring a different perspective.
I also like being able to share some of the fantastic things the children at Brightside achieve.
I am the Deputy Head of Brightside NI School and also a year 2 teacher. I have taught at Brightside for over ten years having started here as an NQT in 2009.
