Kate Majid, Teacher - Year 2 (Swallow)
I'm very excited to join the year 2 team at Bridgewater. I have recently moved to Berkhamsted with my husband and young daughter and we are looking forward to living closer to our extended family and nearer to the countryside. I qualified as a primary school teacher in 1997 and started my teaching career in Hull, where I worked for 4 years. After that I taught in an international school in Kuwait for several years and then spent nearly two years travelling around the world. I have been living and working in London for the past 14 years and during my career I have taught all year groups from year 1 to 6. I am particularly interested in early reading and phonics and supporting children with English as an Additional Language (EAL).
Outside of school I love spending time with my family and travelling and visiting new places. I also enjoy visiting car boot sales and vintage shops, looking for mid-century ceramics and furniture. I also like eating out and I'm very excited to try out all of the lovely restaurants and cafes in Berkhamsted!
