Mrs Smith loves playing board games!! She also enjoys going to the zoo; her favourite animals to see are the otters as they are very dexterous and interesting. In enrichment, she teaches computing. Mrs Smith’s biggest achievement in her life was moving away to university and getting her degree, along with making lots of friends. Her most embarrassing moment was from two plays at Stebbing. One when she was a child and fell over on the stage while she was dressed in tinsel, and another when she was a teacher and got called up to join in with the panto on her birthday. And dressed up in silly clothes and the characters threw coco pops everywhere! When she was a child, she used to go to Stebbing Primary School so is used to the environment of the school.
Mrs Smith has two two cats called Bella and Bo. They are sisters and work together to get whatever they want! Her favourite food is Chinese and Thai food but has a sweet tooth. She is a part of the Stebbing family and is overall the kindest and funniest teacher ever!

The first time she completed it she hadn’t been running very long and the second time she was injured and to this day she still doesn’t know how she crossed the finish line.
In conclusion, Mrs. Clayden is one of the best teachers you could ask for as she is kind, funny, caring, smart and we couldn’t ask for anything better.
