I started at Wellington in May 2018, where I have taught Music and Music Technology in the primary school and throughout the senior school up to Advanced Higher. I currently take the Junior and Senior choirs, as well as taking part in the Senior Orchestra and Wind Band. I am also the Musical Director for the Junior School Shows.
My favorite thing about Wellington is the community and family feel with staff, pupils and their families. There are so many different opportunities for pupils in the school with so many varying extra curricular activities, not just in music and sport.
Ever since I was a little girl I always wanted to be a teacher, first a primary teacher, then a math’s teacher and when I left school I had settled on becoming a Music Teacher. Being a Music Teacher I get to spend every day doing what I love and have the opportunity to share that love and passion for music with young people of all ages.
I am blessed to be in a job where I can see young people developing skills and achieving personal goals constantly. It is also an amazing experience seeing young people’s confidence grow both in the subject and as an individual. There is no other job I would rather be in, nor any other group of young people I would rather have the privilege of teaching.
Wellington has always had a special place in my heart. My Granny, Mrs. McKinley, was the Elocution teacher at Wellington for over 40 years and it is very special to know that I now get to be part of the community she was once a part of.
