Mrs Gregg


Can you introduce yourself and tell us what you do at our school? 

I am Mrs Gregg and I teach Year 1 Badgers.   I have the responsibility of coordinating the teaching of phonics in school. 


What did you study at University? 

I loved dance and drama when I was at school and so I went on to study this at University.  I then did an MA in dance studies.  I retrained as a teacher several years later in Cambridge. 


What were your favourite subjects at school? 

I loved geography and English.  My love of the Lake District resulted from a field trip when I was doing my A Level in geography. 


What did you do before you were a teacher? 

I worked in a university dance department after graduation and then moved to Holland.  When my two sons started school, I began to work in a Dutch  international school and caught the teaching bug! 


What do you like to do out of school? 

I enjoy cooking, going to the theatre, spending time with my family and my mad pets – a cat and a dog - and I love travelling.  I have a long list of all the places I’d like to visit if I ever have the money and the time!  I have recently ticked Japan and America off my wish list. 


What's your favourite meal? 

I love a good Thai curry (fish or veggie – no meat), or Indian saag paneer or a nice comforting jacket potato with cheese and pickle. 


Is there anything you really don't like? 

Ironing, bathing the dog and watching golf or football. 


Can you describe yourself in one adjective?
