Something I like about Jesmond Gardens Primary School:   Helping the pupils to progress with their learning, whilst hopefully reaching and surpassing their potential along the way. It is a very worthwhile, important and essential job working within a school environment so If I can help and guide the students, in any way possible, and make a difference for the better to their education, then that is the greatest reward possible.

One of my other passions (some would say obsessive) is collecting rare and exclusive trainers  - particularly Nike Air Max. I also enjoy going to concerts and festivals as well as a trip to the cinema.
