Mrs Elizabeth Jones
Teacher - KG, Y1 & Y2
I have spent the last 15 years in private education, providing the youngest pupils in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with a fun and creative start to their learning in a school environment. The last 3 years have been here at Castle House in my home town of Newport as KS1 teacher. Before that I spent some time at Birchfield School in Albrighton and at Lyncroft House in Cannock where I also took on the roles of Head of Early Years and Deputy Head of Prep.
In a previous life, I qualified with a Business Degree and have had successful careers in both finance and business, working in banking, accountancy and managing a large health and fitness club. These positions gave me the opportunity to work overseas in both Hong Kong and Australia, as well as travelling the world, which was a fantastic experience. Throughout this time, I worked with children through dancing and fitness, and finally after having children of my own, I realised how important learning in the Early Years is to a child and gained a PGCE in order to teach. I enjoy every day with our pupils and find teaching the most rewarding, challenging and sometimes, amusing, job in the world.
I spend my free time providing a taxi service to my two children and supporting them in all their extra-curricular activities.
I also occasionally find time to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet in the Loire Valley in France.
