What do you do at PEAK?
I deliver PE to pupils at 3 schools. I absolutely love seeing them make progress and develop their skills in PE. PE is such an important subject for children. It develops their confidence and gives them the basic skills to be able to lead a healthy and active life. It also helps children develop sports skills - I've enjoyed sport all of my life and it is so important for building relationships and developing social skills.
What are your credentials/past experience, for working in your position?
I have completed a Degree in Physical Education & Youth Sport, which saw me complete a number of hours in various placements. I coach u8 girls at Burradon Juniors Football Club.

What do you like about working at PEAK/What are you looking forward to when working at PEAK?
Working at PEAK allows me to transfer my skills and knowledge of sport to children, who may not receive this opportunity often, allowing them to exceed and have fun.
What’s your background?
I grew up in Blyth, spending most of my time playing out with my friends, having a ball at my feet, and enjoying sports & PE. My dad never allowed us to sit behind a computer or tv for long periods, as soon as we finished school we were in shorts and a t- shirt and out playing. I have recently finished university and I am working at PEAK until I go onto the SCITT course.
What are the values that drive you?
Being kind to others and showing support and help - benevolence.
Security - safety, secure relationships.
