Miss Coupland– A globe trotter, with a specialism in languages and literature. I have taught as far afield as Spain and Peru as well as locally at Lilliput Infants School in Poole. With a degree in English and Spanish, my main passions are reading, languages and travel. I am also an animal lover, who loves walking and exploring in the countryside and outdoors. As a teacher, colleagues have described me as diligent, creative and caring. I look forward to teaching in year 6 this year, alongside a fantastic team! With previous experience teaching English as a foreign language, I have a solid grasp of English grammar with which to approach the renewed focus on grammar in the SATs. I have also studied the International Baccalaureate, which has provided me with a broad-based knowledge to support and engage learners across the curriculum. I believe in a diverse and balanced curriculum where all children are able to flourish and shine. I look forward to returning to Talbot, where children love to learn and become well-rounded, happy individuals.
