My name is Alison Thwaites and I teach Year 4 children in Room 7.
I have spent many years teaching at all levels of Primary education. Much of my teaching was in Rural schools, but for the last 10 years I have taught in city schools, mostly at Kilbirnie School! I am also a trained Reading Recovery Teacher.
I have also worked in Advertising, Dairy Farming and running a 'Pub' !
I have lived and farmed with my husband in England back in the 'eighties' and have lived in South Wales for a 'rugby season' in the 'nineties'.😊
As most of my teaching life has been in rural schools, I have a lot of experience working in small communities, and now I am fortunate to be working in this Kilbirnie community.
My teaching strengths have always been in the Arts (performing!) and literacy!
Please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or through the school office on (04) 939 2311 if you would like to volunteer to help with your time or skills at school this year.
