Can you introduce yourself and tell us what you do at our school?
My name is Mrs Thorpe and I am the Early Years leader in school. I teach the Foundation Stage Unit and also work with some children from Year 1 in the afternoons.
What did you study at University?
I studied for a BA(Hons) in Primary Education at Nottingham Trent University.
What were your favourite subjects at school?
My favourite subjects at school were History and Maths.
What did you do before you were a teacher?
I went to university to train to be a teacher straight after finishing my A-levels so teaching is all I have ever done. I did work in a few different shops at the evenings and weekends when I was at university.
What do you like to do out of school?
Outside of school I like to spend time with my family and friends. I like going on walks in the Peak District and walking up high hills. I also like reading which helps me to relax in the evenings.
What's your favourite meal?
If I'm honest, I love most types of food! :) But if I had to choose, it would be my mum's roast dinner with lots of Yorkshire puddings and gravy!
Can you describe yourself in one adjective?
