Penny Hodgson - Staff Governor
I have been teaching at Willaston Primary since September 2012 after completing a BA Hons degree in Education at Manchester Metropolitan University and then a Graduate Teaching Programme (GTP). Previously I worked in a variety of primary schools as a Teaching Assistant and Higher Level Teaching Assistant. I thoroughly enjoy my job as a class teacher at Willaston Primary Academy and I am proud to be part of a wonderful staff team and to be working the fantastic children. My current teaching role is in Year 5 and alongside this i am the Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) Mentor which I find very rewarding as I support new teachers in their first position. I ma also the PE subject leader, something very close to my heart as I feel that exercise supports learning across the curriculum and teaches the children to support others and work together.
Now I have been elected as Staff Governor, I am looking forward to being involved with the development and progression of the school and to being proactive in the school's future, both inside and outside of the classroom.
