Hi, my name is Mrs Cross and I am currently lucky enough to be the teacher of Dosbarth Poppy in Year One, whilst Miss Woods is on maternity leave. Teaching has always been my main ambition and dream job. I am passionate about working within the Foundation Phase, it is truly a joy to be a part of these children’s lives, helping them to grow and learn. Although I have only worked at George Street Primary School a short while, I feel a valued member of the team and have built strong bonds with learners and staff here.
Prior to teaching I worked in a bank and a local housing authority, however I have never been happier than when I am facilitating learning. I enjoy watching the skills I have helped to develop and embed into our children emerge through independent work and play.
In my spare time I can usually be found playing with my two children in Pontypool Park, immersed in a good book or enjoying the beautiful beaches and landscapes we have in Wales.
My classroom is an open door, please feel free to pop by at the beginning or end of each school day for a chat or check out what we have been up to in Dosbarth Poppy by following our twitter page @GSPriYear1.
