Puffin Class Teacher: Michelle Sims

I have worked in primary school as a TA/HLTA for over 14 years and as a teacher for 6 years. During my career I attended the University of Portsmouth, graduating in 2011 with a BA hons in Educational Studies. I then went on to complete a one year Graduate Teacher Programme on the Isle of Wight and gained qualified teacher status in 2013. I returned to the school to teach in KS1 for 3 years, then Reception Class for a further 3 years. I really enjoyed the child centred approach and individuality of the Early Years Foundation Stage so I was thrilled when Medina House School offered me the role of class teacher and joint Early Years Lead. I am delighted to be given the opportunity to join the Puffin Class team and look forward to sharing the children’s learning adventures.
