Personal Summary

I pride myself on being highly motivated, hardworking and someone who has a strong desire to work in a challenging, rewarding and worthwhile profession.  I am calm and composed when under pressure, always meet deadlines, and I can quickly establish excellent relationships with students and colleagues which is a vital attribute of a PE and Games Teacher. I have a good sense of humour and relentless enthusiasm when working with students which I believe are essential qualities of an outstanding teacher. I gain immense fulfilment when working with children of all ages, genders and abilities supporting them to achieve their full educational potential. I believe that sport provides an avenue that gives students, who may find other subjects more challenging, opportunities to succeed - raising their self-confidence, participation and sense of inclusion. I continually strive to achieve excellence in all my lessons by creating a positive and safe environment that is conducive to learning. An environment where pupils with differing aspirations can gain invaluable preparation for the world beyond school. Such activities make considerable contributions to local communities and assist schools in forging links with affiliations and local sports clubs. As a committed PE teacher I am passionate in my belief that participation in regular physical activity, recreational or competitive, increases their feeling of self- worth whilst enjoying the opportunities sport provides.
