Miss Bleaken – Year 5
I used to pretend to take the register after school as a young child and relished in any opportunity to present to my peers. After graduating, I was a TA in a secondary school which gave me great experience in education as well as igniting my passion to pursue it further. I have always known I wanted to teach primary and so I am delighted to begin teaching year 5 at Barnack with Ms Earth.
Miss Earth – Year 5
Ever since I was a little girl I have always wanted to be a teacher. Aged 4, I remember lining up my teddy bears and taking a register. I loved primary school and had some amazing teachers. This is my 6th year teaching at Barnack and I love it here! The children are polite, inquisitive and eager to learn. As a teacher, I aim to inspire children and help them develop their own passions and aspirations in life. I am really excited to be teaching Year 5 this year as we did not get a full year together in Year 4 and I feel we need to complete our journey together. Outside of school, my passion is Taekwondo which I have been doing for 22 years - I’m a 4th Dan Black Belt! My other hobbies include reading, gardening and baking.
