School Office Manager

Life before Teesside High School

I started my career working at Middlesbrough Football Club when it was at Ayresome Park and since then I have worked in a variety of industries including retail, animal feed manufacturing, civil service, call centre environment and distribution. I have even tried my hand at running my own dog grooming company…not one of my easiest job roles! This has given me a fountain of experience and knowledge which I draw from every day.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

No two days are the same. I am surrounded by a fantastic team of people and I get to meet lovely children who make me smile every day.

What do you enjoy most about Teesside High School?

Tasty school meals, beautiful grounds, working in such a warm and caring environment. I cannot forget George (our school dog), who is just the most well behaved Labrador I have ever had the pleasure to meet.

What is your favourite time of the year?

That has got to be the start of the longer days and warmer evenings. You cannot beat a lovely BBQ, the smell of cut grass and flowers bursting from hanging baskets.

What do others say about you?

Organised, friendly, organised, approachable, positive and did I mention organised!
