Mrs Kate Pakthyiendra - Year 5/6
What is your educational background?
My school education was in Africa and I completed teacher training in London. I've taught in schools across London and Surrey.
What inspired you to work at St Jude's and what do you bring?
My passion has always been with teaching, and in particular with children from diverse and interesting backgrounds. St Jude’s is one of those little goldmines, just waiting to be discovered. My aim, as part of the team, is to create an environment in which each child is able to break through their individual barriers and perform to their full potential, whilst developing a life-long love for learning.
What are your interests?
Having been born and raised in both Zimbabwe and Kenya, I naturally have a love for the outdoors, open spaces and of course those African sunsets.
