Quick Q&A!

When did you join Notre Dame?
I have worked in NDPS for 8 years now. I did my teacher training here and also my probationary year, so I have actually not really worked anywhere else.

What is your job in the school?
I am a class teacher.

What do you enjoy most about teaching / working with children?
I love teaching because I get to spend a whole school year with children, helping them learn and getting to know them. As the year goes on the class and teacher start to build a bond and work as a great time and I enjoy getting to experience that with a new class every year. Seeing children learn, grow, make new friends and being able to help them to do that is a very rewarding job.

What are your favourite subjects to teach / help children with in school?
My favourite subject is Science so I love teaching that and doing Science experiments in class. I find that most children enjoy it too so it is good to see them happy and enjoying learning.

If you could have any other job rather than being a teacher, what would it be and why?
My favourite subject is Science so I love teaching that and doing Science experiments in class. I find that most children enjoy it too so it is good to see them happy and enjoying learning.

What are your hobbies?
I don’t really get time for hobbies. I took up knitting last winter and started knitting a scarf but it still isn’t finished. I try to run three times a week also but again that doesn’t normally happen. So, I would have to say my hobbies are looking after my children and watching a good movie.

If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be?
If I could meet anyone in the world it would be Michelle Obama. I recently read her book and think she seems really inspiring and knowledgeable and kind. I would love to have a 1:1 conversation with her.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
If I could have a superpower I would love the ability to be in two places at once. Therefore I could be in school teaching and at home with my children at the same time. Those are my two favourite places to be.
