Early Years Foundation Stage Team

 

 

 

  

Miss A Mollart

Nursery Teacher

 

I have worked in schools for nine years.

The best bit about my job is teaching children new skills.

The best thing is getting to listen to all the children's funny comments and stories.

I would say I am 'Responsive'.

 

 

 

 

  

 

Mrs K McNiven

Nursery Senior Teaching Assistant

I have worked in school nurseries for eleven years.

I like helping the nursery children developing into independent, confident little people, who are ready to start school.

I love to listen to the children whilst they play. Their imaginations make me laugh. I also like it when they achieve something that seems so small, like putting on their own coat, makes them so proud of themselves. 

I am 'Patient'.  

 

 

 

 

Mrs L Nicholson

Nursery Senior Teaching Assistant

 

I have worked in schools for 30 years, with a little time off when I had my children.

I like seeing the children growing in confidence and learning to believe in themselves and their own abilities and also knowing that they are valued for who they are.

My best moment was having the opportunity to visit a school in Sweden to observe how they ran their Early Years Department, it was a great experience which I found very interesting and rewarding.

One word to describe me as a professional would be a 'Team Player.'(not sure that's classed as one word, sorry!

 

 

           

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

Miss B Short

Aire Class Teacher

  

 

I have worked in schools as a Student Teacher, and now I have been a NQT since September 2017.

It is always lovely to see the children overcome challenges, big or small, and achieve their goals. 
The best thing about working in school is watching the children grow and develop. I also enjoy observing the children whilst they play, as they come out with the funniest comments! 
One word to describe me is 'caring'.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

      

           

Ms J Brown

Aire Class Teaching Assistant

I have worked in schools for 11 years including voluntary/ employed.

I enjoy making a difference, seeing children grow in confidence and enjoy learning.

The best thing so far has been performing a 'Reach for the stars' song/ dance with a group of colleagues as a surprise leavers assembly for the Year 6 children and our Headteacher's retirement.

I am 'Adaptable'.

 

  

 

Miss M Stirk

Arram Class Teacher

 

I have worked in school since September 2016.

I like my job in Early Years as I get to make a difference to young children's lives on a daily basis.

The best thing that has happened to me whilst working in a school was seeing my first Reception class perform their Christmas Nativity. 

I would describe myself as 'Nurturing'.

 

 

 

 

    

          

Mrs A Dalgleish

Arram Class Teaching Assistant

This is my sixth year working as a Teaching Assistant.  Before this I spent a year volunteering with the charity, Beanstalk, which works to improve reading in primary school children.

The children and staff are what makes Valley View such a great place to be.  I am proud to be a small cog in the machine that helps give children the skills they’ll need for a successful future.

The best thing has to be watching the progress that every child makes – watching them grow in confidence and social skills, as well as abilities.  Being a part of those “penny-drop” moments is a real pleasure.

A word to describe me is ‘Supportive’.

 

 

Miss L Barrett

Foundation Stage

Senior Teaching Assistant

I have worked in schools for eleven years and at Valley View for four and a half years.

I enjoy working with children because they make me laugh and you never know what each day will bring!

I like working at Valley View because we have a fantastic staff team. 

Some of the nursery children call me Miss Parrot! Which they all find very funny.

The best word to describe me is 'Organised'!

 

 

 

 

Mrs C Inman

Arram Class Teaching Assistant

I have worked in schools for 6 years.

I like the fact that every day is different and the children always make me smile.

The best thing about working in a school is the children – watching and helping them achieve their targets.

A word to describe me would be: 'Dedicated'.

 

 

 

 

 

Mrs A Roome

Arram Class Teaching Assistant

 

 

I love working in a school because of the diversity of the things I do and the people I meet - no day is the same! I particularly like working at Valley View because we are one big family.  I've been a School Governor since 2011 but after working briefly at another school in Leeds I joined the team at Valley View in March 2016.

Funny and amazing things happen often in school, but I remember being on a trip to Armley Mills Victorian school room and the very strict school mistress told some of the adults off for not listening, the children thought it very funny but no-one dared laugh!

A word to describe me is: 'Supportive'.
