Can you introduce yourself and tell us what you do at our school?
Hi! I’m Mrs Stewart and I am a Year 1 teacher in Giraffes class. I started working at Eye C of E Primary School in September 2016 and I am thoroughly enjoying my experience!
What did you study at University?
I studied a BA Childhood and Youth Studies degree at The Open University. I completed this degree part time over the course of six years, which meant that during the day I still had time to do what I love most- teaching children! I then went on to train to become a teacher and completed my PGCE at Bishop Grosseteste University!
What were your favourite subjects at school?
My favourite subjects in school were Maths and P.E-Netball in particular! I used to be involved in many sports clubs at school and played for the schools Netball team. Once I had left school, I then joined a local Netball team to continue my love of the sport!
What did you do before you were a teacher?
Before I became a teacher, I worked full time at Holme C of E Primary School as a Teaching Assistant. I also ran an after school care club four evenings a week and often volunteered at a local SEN youth club.
What do you like to do out of school?
I love spending time with my family and friends outside of school! In particular, I spend a lot of time in either Cambridge or London with my husband, drinking coffee or eating out at restaurants! I also love travelling and I try to visit other places as often as possible. This year I have spent time in Belgium, France, Portugal, Singapore and Bali and I am hoping to get away again before the end of 2016!
What's your favourite meal?
I love noodles, but to be honest, I love most food!
Is there anything you really don't like?
Although I love travelling, I am terrified of flying!
