Why are you excited to be working at Crown Street Primary?
I am thrilled to be joining Crown Street Primary School, especially as it offers the extraordinary opportunity to be part of opening a brand-new school in the heart of the amazing city of Manchester! I am extremely excited to work closely with the local community, explore the amazing experiences available in the city centre and dive into designing our learning environments. I can’t wait to welcome our new pupils to the adventure that is Crown Street Primary School!
What are you excited about?
I am eager to meet the new children and their families. I am very much looking forward to building strong relationships and fostering pupils sense of wonder whilst helping them to develop foundational skills through creative, playful and language rich learning experiences.
What book are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading “The Goat and the Stoat and the Boat” which is a fun picture book with rhymes and tongue-twisters.
I also recently read “A Passing On Of Shells”, a beautiful poetry collection which is illustrated by my favourite children’s illustrator, Chris Riddell.
What is your favourite book? 
One of my favourite children’s books is “The Little Prince”. It’s a classic from my childhood that my aunt gave to me when I was a little girl. I would read it over and over again with my parents. Not only is it a brilliant book for children, but it’s also a fantastic read as an adult. Each time I revisit it, I gather a whole new breadth of insight and admiration for the story, its meaning, and the beautiful language within.
In my classroom, I absolutely love reading “Monkey Puzzle” and “The Book with No Pictures”. These are my absolute classroom classics because they never fail to produce laughter and smiles. The engaging stories and interactive elements make them a joy to read with children.
