Mrs Towers - Giraffe Class Teacher


I'm Mrs Towers and I joined St Edmund’s school in 2019 as a Reception class teacher. I also lead RE across the school. You can often find me outside in our Forest School or on a welly walk and I love to scaffold children's learning based on their own interests and ideas.

I enjoy photographing wildlife in my spare time and love camping and coastal walks with my family.
