Miss C. Burke
Hi there! This is my seventh year teaching at Pear Tree Mead. Originally, I come from Ennis, Co. Clare, on the west coast of Ireland and I have now been living in the U.K for the past 11 years. I originally trained in Ireland as a Modern Foreign Languages teacher (French, Spanish and Italian) and began teaching at primary level ten years ago.
In the school, I am the Maths coordinator and I also have other roles such as the UKS2 Phase Leader. When possible, I carry out singing assembly for the whole school and I also run the ‘Young Voices’ singing club with the help of Mrs Chippett and Mrs Robinson, which gives pupils the opportunity to eventually perform at the O2 in London, later in the year.
As a teacher, I believe that ‘every child matters’ and I encourage my pupils daily to have a ‘growth mind-set’ in order to empower them to become the best version of themselves. I believe that education should give pupils the necessary skills to fulfil their ambitions in life and enable them to do so, with confidence.
