Hello everyone, my name is Miss Platts and I’m absolutely thrilled to be teaching Class 9 from September 2015. I have a passion for teaching and learning and enjoy working with young people immensely, as everyday is different and there is always something to make you smile. As a creative individual I have a passion for all of the arts but I also have a keen interest in all subjects, and this is something I like to encourage within my classroom. My own memories of school are very happy ones and that’s exactly what I want to give all students in my class too – with added inspiration, excitement and enthusiasm for learning for all involved!
After completing my Fine Art degree at Leeds Metropolitan University, I worked for a small arts organisation that creates neon light sculptures for artists and designers all around the world. We also staged neon light workshops internationally, from sites up and down the UK all the way to Berlin, Paris and even Reykjavik, Iceland! This has inspired a deeper love of travelling and I look forward to visiting many more different countries and cultures in future.
In my spare time I enjoy visiting art galleries and museums, going to see live music and theatre and spending time with my family and friends. I also love cooking and baking – although I can’t say every recipe is always a success!
