Welcome to our class! My name is Mrs Houlker and I have been a teacher at Rishton Methodist School for 19 years and have been a teacher for 25 years. Throughout this time I have taught both Infants and Juniors but now I am currently really enjoying teaching Foundation Stage.
I have a B.Ed honours degree with English as my main subject and I am the English Subject Leader for the school. Additionally, I am the Foundation Stage Leader and I am part of the Senior Management Team.
When I am not teaching I thoroughly enjoy hill walking and cycling. Another of my hobbies is gardening. I have a fantastic full time teaching assistant called Mrs Humphreys and we are excited to start teaching our new class.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
