Jamie Ann Lennard Curriculum Vitae:
As a mother, I find being with children the most rewarding experience. I cannot begin to express the fulfillment I feel in being able to play a pivotal role in these incredible individual’s lives as they transform from one learning experience to the next. Teaching offers me so much. It is not only the opportunity to influence a child’s mind with knowledge, but to also play an inspirational guiding role in their lives. It allows me to use my passion for uplifting others and my interpersonal skills in such a way that it can only be described as a privilege.
The example of hard work and morals was instilled in me by my very close-knit family. English is my native language; I am very interested in teaching and guiding foreign language pupils who wish to learn English. I believe my fluency in the language makes me all the more capable of working within education. I am not afraid of a challenge and will embrace anything that comes my way with determination and enthusiasm.
I strongly believe my past career experience has equipped me with many skills which enhance my teaching and allow me to be even more effective, organized and efficient. I am able to lead and rise to the occasion and work well under pressure, if need be. I value friendship, loyalty and team work as it is all part of who I am. I am very creative and have experience and skills in Beauty Technology and enjoy crafts and sewing. I have very artistic creative children and enjoy coming up with new ways to keep them interested and entertained, all the while learning and experiencing new lessons.
I have been privileged to teach my own children due to the global coronavirus pandemic using a regulated curriculum. This has been an eye-opening and inspiring experience, really allowing me to embrace and absorb what teaching one on one entails in a practical setting. I have gained a great deal of perspective and respect for them as learners and have gained a great deal of knowledge from them. I believe as a teacher we never stop learning and I look forward to gaining knowledge as well as making a difference and being able to continue being the best version of myself as I possibly can be.

• Thinking out the box and being creative in order to find a solution or to teach a new concept is a skill I have gained from working in a family business in an ever-changing environment.
