Miss Rai 

Class Teacher

Class Teacher

I am so excited to start my teaching journey with Manorfield. 

This is my first teaching post, however I completed my teacher training with two inner Leicester City Schools and a Specialist School. I also have experience working with children who have additional needs. 
I love going to the gym and going on walks to keep myself fit. I also enjoy travelling and exploring different cultures.

 I have been teaching at Manorfield for 6 years and have taught children in EYFS and KS2. 

I have got 2 dogs who I love going on adventures with. I enjoy going away in a caravan and exploring different places. 

I love drawing and art, as well as music.
