Louise became a teacher in 1999 fulfilling her childhood ambition. During her career, she has had the privilege to teach children from nursery through to Year 6 and believes teaching is the best job in the world! During this time, she has taken various leadership roles and became the Headteacher of the Barnehurst Federation of Schools in January 2019.
As a child, Louise was lucky enough to have teachers that inspired her with a love of learning and an education rich with knowledge, skills and positive learning attitudes. Education gave her the life chances and opportunities to live a happy, fulfilled and successful life.
As a Headteacher, this motivates her to ensure every child, regardless of background, benefits from the same chances she had through an education that inspires and challenges them to make the most of the opportunities the 21st Century will offer them. Through education, we not only make a difference to the individual child but will shape the future for us all. “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela
