Elisabeth Sherwin: Pre-Prep Teacher

Elisabeth Sherwin

Pre-Prep Teacher

Elisabeth joined St Edmund’s Pre-Prep in 2008 when she relocated to Kent from London. Previously, she was Year One teacher and coordinator of the five Year One classes at London’s prestigious Thomas’s Preparatory School which was recently chosen by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for their children’s education. Currently, Elisabeth teaches Year Two, she is Key Stage One Coordinator and Deputy Head of the St Edmund’s Pre-Prep.

Elisabeth is a passionate believer in providing a creative curriculum for young children. This carefully-planned programme of teaching produces excellent academic results and motivated, enthusiastic students. Elisabeth says that the creative curriculum “provides exploration and discovery as a way of learning, enabling children to develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical thinking skills”. Elisabeth creates an exciting learning environment and ensures that children are exposed to ideas that are presented and reinforced in a variety of modes: kinaesthetically, aurally, orally and visually.

Elisabeth enjoys providing creative and fun learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom and runs a variety of extra-curricular clubs – from chess to country dancing – as well as introducing new initiatives e.g. Lego Therapy, Pre-Prep Poetry Recitals and the hugely popular Dragonfly Outside Learning Week.
