I grew up in sunny North Devon and went to university up in Lufga. I then spent 2 years living in Leicester before me and my wife went travelling around Sri Lanka, India, Thailand and Nepal. On our return we moved to Bristol where we have just brought our first house. We are expecting our first baby in May!
I have worked in several different primary and special needs school during my time as a supply teacher which gave me real insight into how different schools and teachers work. However, the sense of community and caring environment within Westhaven school encouraged me to stay here and take up a full time post. Everyday is interesting and rewarding and everyday is a highlight when my students accomplish and overcome challenges personal to them; I love to watch them grow and develop.
Hobbies & Interests
Outside of school I am a keen reader, reading mainly non fiction and listening to podcasts. I love music of all genres, I occasionally DJ at friend’s parties and weddings but mainly just l love playing around the house. We have a cocker spaniel called Podge and we enjoy getting out to walk him, his favourite place is the beach so we often get down to the north devon coast to give him a good run!
I am a calm, friendly and easy-going person. I forgive and forget easily. I am passionate about learning and helping others to learn and develop in to their full potential.
