Mrs Rawn gained her BA (Hons) in Primary Education, graduating with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) from St Mary’s University, Twickenham. Alongside her degree, she completed an ‘Initial Teacher Education’ course at The National Gallery, which gave her greater understanding of how to incorporate the arts into core subjects.
Mrs Rawn has previously taught in Key Stage 1 and 2 in state schools in North and East London. Prior to completing her degree in Education, she worked in a PRU (Pupil Referral Unit), focusing on art and poetry as a means of expression. Her teaching extended into her travels, teaching English to children in Hangzhou (a province of China), and Kerala in South India. Whilst studying for her degree, she worked as a private household tutor, providing tailored educational programmes, and developing her understanding of how to prepare children for the 11+ entrance exams; she has successfully helped children gain scholarships in the West London area.
Growing up, Mrs Rawn found it difficult to read and put her thoughts on paper; she was later diagnosed with dyslexia. As a result, she has strived to adapt her teaching style to ensure all pupils can reach their potential and overcome any hurdles.
