Acorns 2019 - 2020

Miss Daniels

I am delighted to be teaching at Whitegate C of E Primary School and being part of the school community. This is my second year as Reception Teacher at Whitegate and I love being part of each child's learning journey. I feel passionate about helping Reception children settle into school life and feel privileged to welcome new parents and their children. My passion is making learning exciting and enjoyable for all children. Outside of school I like to spend time with my family and 'try' to keep fit.
