Meet the Team
Miss Nowshirvani - Class Teacher
Hello, my name is Miss Nowshirvani and I have the privilege of teaching The Busy Bees in Year Two this year. I have worked at Wellgate for eleven years and this is my seventh year teaching in Year Two. This year, I am looking forward to seeing The Busy Bees grow and enjoy their learning and the challenges they are given. I strive to help all children to aim to be the best that they can be which makes it the most rewarding job. I am inspired by my family and people who make a difference in their own way, especially those who are selfless and passionate. My favourite hobby is going to the theatre to watch a musical - if I wasn't a teacher (and could sing), I would definitely be on the stage. I can be found in a theatre most months! I love the colour purple and enjoy eating coffee flavoured ice cream!
Miss Turner - Teaching Assistant
Hello, my name is Miss Turner and I am one of the Teaching Assistants in Year Two. I love working in Year Two because of the determination of the children. There is nothing more rewarding than supporting a child and them being successful. I am most proud of my two children. I love stationery and enjoy buying new pens and pencils! I cannot wait to spend another year in Year Two working with such enthusiastic children.
Mrs Hallam - Teaching Assistant
Hello, my name is Mrs Hallam and I am very lucky to have been given a job at such a lovely school. I work across both Year Two classes and love each new day supporting such enthusiastic children. I enjoy education because there are always new things to discover and learn – education allows us all to do this. I love to learn about lots of things but I specialise in music and find it fascinating learning about Ancient History. I find it interesting how things came to be. One of my favourite subjects is Egyptology. I grew up in Carnlough, a quiet little village on the coast of Northern Ireland. It has a lovely beach, beautiful green fields and a little harbour where Sammy the Seal lives! I have many hobbies including playing in my band, playing on the Xbox and reading fantasy novels.
Mrs Butler - Teaching Assistant
Hello, my name is Mrs Butler and I am excited to be working in Year Two this year. I have worked in EYFS and Year One before so this is a new challenge for me! I love my job because I get a sense of achievement when I help children to make progress and achieve something they are putting their minds to. I really enjoy being crafty and have many different projects on the go. Learning to drive has been my biggest accomplishment so far. If I could learn new skills myself, it would be something about technology as I know this would be useful.
