Early Years Foundation Stage Team

 

 

  

Miss A Mollart

Nursery Teacher

 

I have worked in schools for 8 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 ten 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 29 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 R Fiddes

Aire Class Teacher

 

 

I have worked in schools for 2.5 years (1.5 as a teacher, 1 as a 1:1 TA)

I like inspiring children to be interested in the world around them. 

The best thing that has happened to me while working in schools is seeing how much children grow in confidence over the course of a year. 

A word to describe me is 'Caring'.

 

 

 

      

           

Ms J Brown

Aire Class Teaching Assistant

I have worked in schools for 10 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 K Wilkinson

Aire Class Teaching Assistant

 

I have been working in school for 6 years.

No two days are the same and I love watching children grow and learn.

Working in Reception every day has funny moments - it always makes me smile when the minis invite me to have tea at their house!

A word to describe me is: 'Patient'.

 

 

 

  

 

Miss M Stirk

Arram Class Teacher

 

I have worked in school since September 2016 as a NQT!

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 fifth 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 ten years and at Valley View for three 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'!
