All About Me!
My name is Mrs McPhillips but most people know me as Sophie and I am a teaching assistant at Wheatley Hill Primary. I have previously worked alongside Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children, although I am going to be allocated to the resource base from September 2018.  I have been a teaching assistant at Wheatley Hill for over 6 years now and I love working with children.   

I grew up in Peterlee where I still live, however now I live with my husband and two children who are Pollie aged 7 and Annabelle aged 4 and they are my world.

I love to socialise with my friends, I do exciting things with my children when not at school and I go shopping for nice things for the role play area in school, as I like acting out.  I love to go on adventures with my girls and go out on trips to visit lots of interesting places.

In my spare time I enjoy running and I like to enter a variety of races from 5k to marathons where I run for 26 miles. Currently with my hobby of running I have set up a running club where I help people succeed in running different distances and this makes me proud. When I am not socialising or having family time I help my mam out in the local bar she runs and help to serve people which I enjoy as I like to meet new people.   
I am available most days in school, so please come and say, "Hello."

We’d love to hear from you!
