Miss S Hinton

Teacher (Robins Wednesday - Friday)

My interests: I enjoy spending time with my friends and my son who also went to Meadow, and is now in High School. When I'm not being a taxi driver for him and his friends ferrying them to various sporting activities,  I enjoy going away for weekends and finding new places to explore. I trained to be a teacher here at Meadow 9 years ago and loved it so much I never left!

A fun fact about me: I am extremely clumsy and have broken my wrist 5 times!

Mrs J Spencer

Teacher (Robins Monday - Wednesday)

My interests: I love delicious food and enjoy cooking and baking using the fruits and vegetables that I have grown in my garden. I enjoy dancing, swimming and going for walks with friends and family. I love nothing more than finding a bargain and enjoy hunting in charity shops, car boot sales and shop sales for the best buys! My ideal day is a day on the beach where I can relax in the sun with music and a good book, but also bodyboard on the waves and explore in the rockpools with my young children.

I love being a part of the Meadow Primary family and it makes me happy to be able to help and be there for the children and to see them learn. 

A fun fact about me: I am extremely competitive and love playing (but hate losing!) games with friends. If you are in my class, I will play some fun games with you.

I love music, especially live performances, and enjoy going to concerts when I can. I also love live comedy. Another pastime of mine is reading; I always have a book on the go!

I have two children, a girl who is in high school and a boy in primary. I have been a teaching assistant for a number of years now and absolutely love it! 

I decided to be a teaching assistant after having my own children and taking them to lots of play groups, where I often helped out and we loved going.  It was so much fun and so lovely meeting lots of new people and their children. 

Fun fact about me : I always wanted to be a singer or a dancer when I was a little girl and was always singing and dancing (still do). I did lots of shows on stage which I loved and even got to do a dance show in Disney Land Paris! My all time favourite song is “Proud Mary” and when it comes on there is just no stopping me.
