Catherine Reeves

Y5 Teacher –   Rimington Class Archimedes
Catherine joined us recently as a teacher in year 4. She qualified in 2014 after studying for her PGCE at the University of Winchester. Her first teaching position was a large primary school in Bracknell. This was a great learning experience, giving her the opportunity to get to grips with the new curriculum in Key Stage 2. She enjoys working with KS2 children as they become more independent and ask more challenging questions! Before becoming a teacher, she worked at Nokia in Farnborough as an Electronics Engineer in the R&D centre, and has continued to be interested in technology. Her favourite subjects are maths and science, but she also loves art and history. She enjoys teaching languages and is looking forward to sharing her knowledge of French with the children here at Evendons.  She is delighted to be joining the school at such an exciting time in its development and is looking forward to working with you and your children in the years to come.
