Having the opportunity to be part of the development of our nursery has been exciting, as is leading phonics, reading and working with Parents. I always look forward to Parent workshops, Share-a-session and face painting at our HSA events.
On a personal note, I am a family first person, enjoying quality time with my now grown-up children. I have a mischievous labrador who takes me for some lovely walks! My interests include yoga, mindfulness and the performing arts, enjoying live music, dancing and the musicals.

Hi, my name is Samantha Price. I am the class LSA in Reception.
I was lucky to join St Kenelm's in September 2019 having previously worked in Primary Education for over 17 years and also in private day nurseries for 10 years.
I love working with all children, but particularly in Early Years. It's a privilege to watch them grow and thrive in the inspiring, nurturing, learning environment that we as a team create. Outside of school I enjoy walking my dog, spending time with my family and creating memories.

Hi, Im Lisa and I joined St Kenelm's as an LSA in December 2019. Before I came to St Kenelm's I was working at another school in Dudley where I had been for the past 3 years. I really enjoy working with children of all ages and abilities, either in a class group or providing 1-1 support where needed.
On a personal note I live in Halesowen with my husband. We have three boys, 24,19 and 8 and two dogs, so we have a very busy household. In my spare time I enjoy keeping fit, shopping and crafting.
