Glastonbury Thorn School

Higher level Teaching Assistant

My Journey

My first experience of the Glastonbury Thorn was as a parent when my daughter joined over a decade ago! I then became an official member of the GTS family in 2009 as a lunch time supervisor and have never looked back since. We call it the GTS family as that is what we are, one big family! I have grown and learnt so much in my time here, I have been given the opportunities to further my career in an environment that is welcoming to everyone. I believe we treat the children in the same way. We give them the opportunities to grow their learning in a way that is fun, safe and happy!

As a child I did not like school, reading and writing in particular. Now it is my passion to get children reading and writing, and enjoying it too! I love listening to the children read and seeing the fantastic progress they make in their learning as they journey through the school.

The best part of my job is seeing all the smiling faces of the children as they run into school in the morning eager to learn, and the smiling faces as they leave after having a fulfilling and happy day.
