EYFS Lead/Pre-School Teacherl.firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello and welcome to EYFS. My name is Louise Whitfield and I graduated twenty years ago from the University of Sunderland with a BA(hons) in Primary Education.
I have been working at King Street Primary and Pre-School for over ten years and have worked in lots of different year groups during my time here, but I love my current role and can't imagine being any where else!
I consider myself very lucky to work with all of the amazing children who enter our doors every day.
I live in Spennymoor with my little boy and I have a LOT of pets. I have five rescue cats, two fish and two tortoises.
I enjoy reading, shopping and singing.
Reception Class Teacherp.email@example.com
Hello everyone. My name is Paula Hopwood. I have been teaching at King Street for 3 years as the Reception Class Teacher. My experience in teaching has been 17 years in total, 2 years as a year 4 teacher, 1 year as a year 2 teacher and 14 years in Reception class. My heart lies with the youngest children in school. I'm given the opportunity to grow alongside your children every day as they begin their learning journey and feel very lucky to do so.
I live in Bishop Auckland on a very pretty farm, which I only look at thankfully and am not required to deal with the animals. I do, however, love animals and I have 2 small dogs called Louis and Oscar. I have 2 grown up girls that have left home now and I'm very proud of them.
My hobbies include walking, shopping and visiting my family. I love to read and listen to books so I can learn new things.
