    I was born in Sheffield and moved here with my family. I was a pupil at the original Longmeadow school and my children went to Oaklands before the schools amalgamated and became Oakmeadow. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be a teacher at my old school or the school where my own children went. I am married with 2 children who both got married this year. Simon who is 33 and has just returned from working in Beijing for 4 years and is now working in London again. Amy is 30 and working in Dubai with her new husband and we are looking forward to visiting them soon. I enjoy reading, gardening and travelling, having been to some fabulous places around the world I never thought I would go just so I could see my own children!

    I am a Shropshire Lass who spent her childhood growing up in Bayston Hill with her 2 older brothers.
    My very first school was Oaklands Infants School when it was newly opened. From there I went to Longmeadow Primary School following in the footsteps of my brothers. I spent 4 very happy years years there and have very fond memories, although the school looks very different from my day. It is lovely to see the 2 schools merged now, and I am looking forward to supporting the management team and giving something back to the school that gave me such a good start in my educational life.

    My first job was working for National Westminster Bank where I spent 14 years. I am now a fully qualified HR professional having gained my qualifications whilst working for Land Registry in London. Since then I have worked for the local NHS Trusts and am now working on a part time basis whilst supporting my elderly mother.
