I think I have taught over 800 children (23 years and 35 children going up to school each year). So there have been lots of tears and tantrums, bumped heads and scraped knees, puddles-
I really need to say thank you to the people I have worked with over the years. I have had THE BEST support from some of the most hardworking people I’ve ever met. Miss McGlynn supported me as a new teacher in the school and still does as a lifelong friend. Mrs Crighton has been my colleague and close friend through all the years. We share a lot of funny memories and she has kept me sane. She is a wonderful nursery nurse who still gets emotional when a child with language delay starts to speak or when a child learns to read. Mrs Schumacher was always SO patient with children who needed extra support. Miss Dunphy persevered for 3 years to teach a child with Downes Syndrome to walk.
More recently I’ve worked with Miss Schumacher, Miss Tinsley, Mrs Brown and Mrs Burgan-
I also need to thank Mrs Wilson who has been teaching me lots of things to help me in my next job and of course, most of all, Miss Hindmarsh. She makes sure that all the children and their families, get the best possible support in school, but is also there for every single member of staff supporting them through a lot of tough times.
I will certainly miss the support network of everyone at C of E but I won’t miss sitting on those tiny nursery chairs!
Much love to all the families and children at KCE -
Hope to see you all soon
