Hello, my name is Mrs Waller and I teach Class 4 (Year 6) at South Kilvington Primary Academy. I joined South Kilvington in September 2022, having moved from working in North Tyneside. I have experience of working across the whole primary age range and thoroughly enjoy the challenges and differences that come within each key stage. I do especially love teaching in Year 6 as we get to study topics at a greater depth using a range of high quality resources to complete research and answer questions.
I have extremely high expectations of myself, my colleagues and the children I teach as I truly want all children to achieve and be the best they can be. In addition, I adopt a growth mindset within my practice and always remind children that ‘if you can’t do something now, it just means you can’t do something yet’. I always utilise positive praise and encourage children to feel proud of the pieces they produce.
I live in the Yorkshire Dales with my husband, our little girl and dog, which definitely keeps us busy. Outside of school, I enjoy going for walks and spending time with friends and family.
