Miss Leek

Year 5 Teacher

I’m Miss Leek I have been a teacher at Woodlands Academy since 2014, before Woodlands I spent my time teaching at two different primary schools in South Gloucestershire- I started my teaching career in 2009. I trained to be a teacher in Manchester and was lucky enough to spend some of my time at university, teaching and studying in Boston, America. I love teaching and watching children develop and grow into successful learners, enthused and hungry to improve their learning. I am committed to encouraging children to become more independent and self-sufficient; wherever possible, I want the pupils in my care to make choices about where their learning takes them. Within Woodlands I lead maths, RRS and Healthy School and currently teach in year 5.

In my spare time I very much enjoy running and have taken part in several half marathons. Running a full marathon is my next goal! I also enjoy cinema and films and have a huge soft spot for Olly Murs!
