Quick Q&A!

When did you join Notre Dame?
I was lucky enough to be here from the very first day we opened, back in 2013.

What is your job in the school?
Oh!  So many!  Lol.  Classroom Mummy, mediator, negotiator, encourager, multi-tasker, frube opener, confidante…… in short…… teacher!  I am also delighted to be one of our Health and Well-being gurus.

What do you enjoy most about teaching / working with children?
Knowing that the children in my care are happy while they are learning.

What are your favourite subjects to teach / help children with in school?
Writing fabulous stories filled with wonderful adjectives and teaching children to develop their growth mindsets.

If you could have any other job rather than being a teacher, what would it be and why?
Baby photographer – to combine my love of working with mini humans with my love of photography and the arts.

What are your hobbies?
Photography, cooking, baking, reading, chatting and laughing!

If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be?
My childhood hero Nadia Comaneci; the Romanian gymnast who, in 1976, was the first gymnast to be awarded a perfect score of 10.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Time travel – so that I could sit and have more precious time chatting with my inspiring late Polish granny, Alice, whom I miss very much.
