My name is Mary McLaughlin and I am the classroom teacher of Miró class. I am a new teacher at Iffley academy but previously worked at the school in 2018 as a teaching assistant.

When I am at home I like to bake cookies, draw and read. I have a mischievous puppy called Paisley. Paisley likes to tease my cat and tortoises while I’m relaxing in the garden.

I love travelling to new places around the world and learning about different cultures. Miró class is named after the famous artist Joan Miró from Barcelona who created dream-like art using simple shapes and bright colours.

Miró class is part of the Louvre gallery where we prioritise a) appropriate friendship groups b) shared learning styles c) engagement and interest levels.
