Mrs Were - Early Years Leader
Hello. My name is Mrs Were. I am the current Acting deputy head teacher, Key stage One leader and teach St Bernadette class in Year 2. I have taught at St Paul’s for a long time so I may know some of your brothers and sisters! I love being a teacher at St Paul’s because we are a family of children , staff, parents, parish and God. I enjoy playing netball in my free time and am part of a local netball team! I have a white cat called Marley who I love to play with. I have lots of favourite books but in particular I enjoy Guess how much I love you by Sam McBratney because it reminds me of when I used to read it to my little sister when she was born!
Mrs Mulgrew - Early Years Teacher
Hi! My name is Mrs Mulgrew and I am one of teachers in St Anne's class. I have taught at St Paul's for 7 years and really love it, everyone is so kind and we all look after each other, we are one big family.
Although I have taught in other years groups most of my teaching has been in the Early Years. I really love teaching the first year of school it's so important and we get to learn through lots of play and exploration. My other job is being a mummy to my 2 year old twin boys, they definitely keep me busy! We love sharing books together, they especially love the author Julia Donaldson and one of our favourites is 'The Highway Rat'.
Mrs West - Early Years Teacher
Hello! My name is Mrs West and I have been teaching at St Paul’s for nine years now. It is a fantastic place to teach with amazing children, families and staff. Since being at St Paul’s I have taught in a number of different year groups and have been teaching children to read as an Ecar teacher (Every Child a Reader). Reading is my absolute favourite thing and I am often found with my nose in a good book! My favourite children’s book is ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ by Maurice Sendak. I love the illustrations and the idea of Max, the main character, having an adventure and sailing off in his own boat. Before I became a teacher I travelled around the world for eighteen months, living in Australia for a year and then spending time in South East Asia. I am very busy at home now as I have two children and two cats called Moon and Raffy. They are very mischievous but lots of fun!
