Mr Williams (TA)
Hello, my name is Mr Williams. I have worked as a TA in Kites since it opened in 2013.
Mrs Tamblin (ARB Manager)
Before I moved to Cornwall and entered education I worked in sport and recreation. Having worked in gyms and aerobics one of my favourite jobs was working with young people who had been referred to the gym by their GP as part of a weight loss programme, very rewarding. I also spent four years working for an outdoor education provider delivering residential activities to young people. I have recently qualified as a Thrive practitioner.
When I was at school my favourite subject was PE, probably because it meant I could be outside.
My favourite colour is green because it reminds me of the outdoors.
My favourite meal is definitely a chicken roast dinner.
My hobbies are walking my lovely border collie Jess, going to the gym, travelling, and enjoying time with my friends and family.
My dislikes are maths, sitting still and really fishy fish. Something not many people know about me....? I'm a bit of an open book!
