I really enjoy passing on my joinery experiences and skills to the students, as well watching them develop into good citizens.
I teach a subject that I am passionate about and transfer my knowledge and skills to our students. I also work with an amazing team, every day is different and a unique challenge - the job is never boring!
I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience of animals with students and seeing a learners journey as they make progress.
