Jess Sharp

Nursery Teacher

Hi, my name is Jess and I’m the new Nursery teacher at Vernon Terrace. I completed my training placement here back in 2018 and feel incredibly excited to be working in the school as a teacher from January 2022.

I love exploring and think that encouraging children to explore the world around them and developing their curiosity is one of the best parts of my job. In my spare time, you can find me trying out new recipes in my kitchen, walking my dog in the countryside, getting arty and creative or planning my next adventure!
