I have been a teacher for over 30 years, working across Key stages 1 and 2 and I am currently teaching in a primary school in Dudley. I believe strongly that every child deserves an education of the highest quality and that our primary schools have a vital role to play in shaping our society. My two sons attended Redhill Primary School and were extremely happy there. They were taught well and the caring, nurturing ethos of the school gave them confidence. They benefitted from the wide range of activities on offer including sport, music and art. Redhill School is my local primary school and I would welcome any opportunities to help the school work with others in the local community. I am grateful to the school for the excellent education my children received and I am glad of the opportunity to give something back.
