My name is Alex Gray. I grew up in Surrey but have truly found a home in Kent. I always loved learning and was very keen to return to school as a teacher. Consequently, I dived straight into a Primary Education degree (with a specialism in Maths) at Canterbury Christ Church University, where I graduated with first class honours in 2014.
Upon qualifying, I found my first teaching post in Canterbury, which was in Year 2, and have stayed there for the last three years. I’m very excited to start teaching in Year 1, as I know exactly what I would expect children to be capable of when they finish!
I have only recently moved to the area from Canterbury, and am currently moonlighting as the worlds least capable handyman in order to renovate the house in Wadhurst that my fiancée and I will be living in. Once I’m done, I hope to more consistently practise my hobbies; teaching myself guitar, reading, cooking experimental meals, writing and going to the gym.
In my previous school I led Humanities in addition to being a class teacher, and I will be taking on the same roles here at Goudhurst & Kilndown.
