Golden Eagles

Meet the teacher: Miss Stickley.

 I have been teaching for twenty one years. Seventeen of these have been at Chacombe School. I teach Year 5 and 6 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and Mrs Haig will teach Golden Eagles on a Friday.

I have an almost 6 year old daughter who keeps me on my toes.

I enjoy being outdoors, animals and the natural world, broadening my general knowledge, reading and watching football.
