Name: Michaela Sherlock
Role: Leader of Teaching and Learning, Year 2 Teacher and Student mentor.
I am originally from Pembrokeshire but moved to Cardiff in 1999 where I completed a degree in Art and Aesthetics. Following this I worked in the Welsh Assembly for a few years before completing a PGCE in 2006. I worked as a supply teacher for a time and managed to get a job at Marlborough Infants (before we amalgamated with the juniors.) I am very fortunate to work at Marlborough; the children are great, the families are really supportive and we have an amazing team.
I am married and have two sons. I still have a keen interest in art and have been fortunate enough to illustrate some books written by my mum, Kedrig’s Challenge and Tolsham’s Dream. I am in the process of illustrating her latest book, Cardarna’s Quest. I love cooking and so do my boys. We love getting outdoors and going for walks and bike rides whenever we can.
I am very fortunate that my parents still live in Pembrokeshire and try to get back to see the sea as often as possible. My family have a Lovespoon business and it is a lovely place to go and spend time and be involved.
I have a pretty eclectic taste in music but I especially love David Bowie. I don’t watch much TV but I do love a good comedian and Greg Davies is my all-time favourite.
I like lots of different foods but my favourite is Italian.
My top character strength is humour.
