Sally Beach -I have been a teacher for more than 25 years. I love working with all of the primary age groups but nursery is my favourite. Every day is different. The children have such enthusiasm and energy for all that they do and each day reveals a new skill, an investigation or discovery. The "Wow" moments are continuous!
I am local to Cirencester. I have also lived in Cheltenham, Fairford and Siddington. I have 2 children. A son at secondary school and a daughter at college. I have worked around Gloucestershire in different schools and nurseries including Powells, Hatherop Castle and Bright Eyes. I have also had the opportunity to teach in Grand Cayman in the Caribbean. My family spent 3 years there and loved every minute. My children had experience of attending school with children from all over the world and were able to spend their free time snorkelling in the clear blue sea, spotting different tropical fish and even stingray and turtles.
In my free time I enjoy reading and going to the theatre. I love to walk my dog and we also have a Corn Snake and Royal Python to take care of.
Mrs K Locke - I am thrilled to be teaching at my old Primary School; giving back to the community, which gave me my foundations in education. Having graduated in 2011, I have focused 6 years extending my specialism within Early Childhood Development and Education and have achieved Early Years Professional Status.
I work every morning as Jersey class teacher and in the afternoon, I am the room leader of our Pre-School class; Blossoms. I am fortunate to support all ages of children in the Early Years within the school and provide the consistency children require at such a crucial young age. The Early Years is a journey, and if I can create a model environment where children enjoy learning with a smile, then I can think of nothing more rewarding.
