'My links to Lord Street School go back almost forty years, as I was a pupil here myself. Some years later, I chose to send three of my children to Lord Street too. They consequently went on to have successful educations and careers. My working life at Lord Street began ten years ago when I briefly volunteered whilst studying at university. I obtained a higher-level qualification in supporting learning in primary schools and later gained a degree while working in KS1. My goal is to continuously help our children to be the best that they can be.'
