I have been teaching in Ashburton since 1999, where I started at Netherby School. To further my learning I moved to Tinwald School in 2012, and am very pleased to have finally come back to Netherby School.
I am enjoying working with your children in Room 5, and am looking forward to getting to know them better.
I am a strict, but fair teacher who believes in giving the children choices about their learning and behaviour. I expect excellent manners at all times and am a firm believer that this is a must as manners don't cost anything but mean so much.
I am married to Snow Mackenzie and we have 2 children. Connor is 16 and Ella is nearly 12. In my free time I am an Allenton Scout Leader and a Tinwald Cub leader. Both roles keep me busy but also keep me refreshed and energised.
