I am a UK qualified primary school teacher and recently moved from Valencia, Spain to Brighton at the end of July 2018. I am extremely passionate about teaching and have taught all ages and stages within the primary curriculum. My areas of interest and strengths are teaching reading, maths and art, especially within Key Stage 1. I am extremely interested in alternative approaches to education and see a huge value in creating real world connections, involving communities and families and outdoor learning within schools and classrooms.
