Liz Fitzpatrick

Willow Class Teacher

I am the Willow Class teacher and the SENDCo (I oversee the provision for children with a special educational needs within the school).

I have worked at Firle for over 6 years and have enjoyed teaching in Willow Class as well as teaching in Holly. In addition to working in such a beautiful setting, it has been a joy to teach the inquisitive and enthusiastic children here.

Throughout my lengthy teaching career I have taught in Hackney and rural Sussex. These contrasting areas have both provided different challenges and rewards!
