Welcome to Willow class. I’m Mrs Edwards and I’ve made a quick guide to me in numbers!
I’m 167cm tall.
I love animals and have quite a menagerie at home with 5 rabbits, 2 hamsters and 2 cats. Not to mention my 2 children and 1 husband, who would like to have fewer animals but with the addition of 1 dog.
I previously had a 13 year career as a script supervisor in television production at the BBC. I’ve visited 21 countries, mostly when working on Blue Peter, I’ve lived in New York on East 72nd Street and I spent the first 2 years of my life in the middle east and Canada.
After leaving the BBC, I was a school governor for 3 years and a TA for a few more. I then retrained to be a teacher and it’s one the best decisions I’ve made.
I run a GirlGuiding Rainbows unit of 21 girls aged 5-7 years old.
In my spare time, I love gardening and going to bike rides on my 8-geared electric bike called Bluebell.
Lastly, I drink about 6 cups of tea a day and eat 6 times as much chocolate as I should.
Someone that really inspires me is a photographer called Ansel Adams. He took stunning images of the natural world, particularly of great American landscapes such as Yosemite National Park. Not only was he a talented photographer but he used his stunning photos to encourage people to care about our environment.
Kindness to me involves making the effort to understand other people and to actively challenge our own preconceptions. It means being compassionate, patient and treating others and our planet with respect.
