• In my spare time I love to cook. Food gives me great joy. • I love having adventures with family and friends, especially ones that push me out of my comfort zone.• I have an irrational fear of cows. • I like to say fit by taking part in running and combat.

Teacher: Silver Birch Class
I’m in my 10th year of teaching at Sandown and I love it. Before teaching, I worked for the DWP for many years and made lifelong friends but teaching has always been my passion…ever since I was young. I have lived in Hastings all my life but moved away to Brighton when I went to university for 4 years. In my own time, I enjoy keeping fit and healthy and regularly go to the gym. I’ve recently started kickboxing and I’m hooked! I love socialising with friends and family and heading out for dinner. I love love love painting nails…that’s my chill out hobby. I enjoy holidays in the sun and can’t wait to get away again.
