Mrs Dunlop is a Key Stage 1 specialist who has joined us to help teach in our Year 2 class. Here is a little bit about her.
Class: Year 2 – Dragonflies
What made you want to be a teacher?
Friends have always said I was destined to be a teacher. I was nicknamed the ‘Walking dictionary’ at Primary school because I used to help others with their spellings. However, all I wanted to do was work in a sweet shop! I did work experience at my old Primary school whilst I was at Sixth form. I loved working with the children so much and seeing the difference a teacher could make, my decision was made that I wanted to make that difference and help to create a fun and inspiring place for others to learn.
What is your favourite food?
I am a huge chocaholic so it has to be chocolate, maltesers in particular!
What is your favourite book?
I have loved The Secret Garden since I was little. It is so magical the way the garden changes as the children in the story do. It also appealed as it is set in Yorkshire, where I lived until I was 7.
If you were a Disney character which one would you be?
I think I would be Alice from Alice in Wonderland. I love meeting new people and am curious about new places and situations. Oh, and I can be a bit of a daydreamer sometimes too!
