Show Bio

As a seasoned PE teacher my goal is to boost children’s physical and mental wellbeing through engaging PE lessons and events. I take great pleasure in aiding children to reach their potential and bolster their confidence. A netball fan, I still actively participate in the sport and take pride in co-founding the Chorley Inferno Netball Club. Above all, I treasure the moments spent with my family and friends.
