Hello! My name is Catharine Omer. I have been teaching at Goudhurst & Kilndown since 2000, mostly in Key Stage 1. I am now in Year 4 and really enjoying learning with the marvellous children.
As well as a Class teacher, I am also subject leader for Religious Education and Personal, Social and Health Education and have a particular interest in specific learning skills and improving the social skills of the children. I have also recently completed a Mindfulness in Schools Project training so that I can now teach mindfulness, the Paws B scheme, to children. I have also helped student teachers train in our class which is of enormous benefit to the children as well as me and the student!
Outside of school I love to spend time with my children and dance as often as I can (usually in the kitchen!). I have just finished an MA in Teaching and Learning with the Institute of Education, part of University College London.
