To relax Colin enjoys travelling and cooking.

Charlotte Kukstas

Charlotte received her medical degree at Sheffield University and spent her first two years as a junior doctor working in Scarborough and Hull before coming back to Sheffield to do her GP training. Outside of her work her main interests are cooking and gardening.  Charlotte likes to make the most of having the Peak District on her doorstep and enjoys doing a few cycle rides when the weather is nice.

She has seen the medical issues of children with cerebral palsy and is interested in the educational aspects to help make a difference.

Appointed as a Paces school Governor on 26th July 2016

Emma’s background is in business management and finance and she is eager to use her knowledge and skills to benefit the School.

She has a Bachelor’s Degree, a Masters in Business Administration and is ACCA qualified, though not a practising accountant.  She has over 20 years business experience.

Emma’s daughter, Mia, has attended Paces since 2011 and she has seen first-hand what Paces School for CE can offer to both pupils and parents alike.  She is keen to help the Governing Body in any way possible to make the School an even more outstanding place that it is already.

She is very passionate about this as it has been a wonderful support for herself, her husband and her daughter.  Before Mia started in the Nursery they viewed several different options across Sheffield and knew immediately that Paces was the only place for her.

Before joining Paces, Jayne worked as a volunteer for Home Start, a charity that supports families and children.

She joined Paces on January 2008 and has, generally, worked with Primary and Secondary students. Although, she has also had opportunities to get involved with students from the whole school.

During her employment, she has studied and successfully qualified as a level 3 Teaching Assistant.

She hopes her role as a governor will provide her with new skills and establish ongoing support throughout Paces.

Eva graduated from Peto Institute in 2007 as a Conductor-Teacher.

She began her career working with adults before being asked to go to Germany where she worked for one year at FortSchritt in a conductive nursery and led afternoon sessions for school aged children as well.

After moving to England in 2009, she joined Paces, working with students in both primary and secondary classes.

Eva became deputy safeguarding leader in 2017 and was elected as staff governor in Spring 2018.

Maggi has a background in administration with the Department of Work & Pensions prior to her retirement. Maggi’s grandson Jack atttends Paces on a split placement basis and she enjoys spending time with both her grandchildren.

During her past experience Maggi took a complete career break and went to Iceland (the country, not the shop!) to work various jobs including fish factory, nursing home and hospital whilst attending evening classes and attempting to learn the Icelandic language.

Having witnessed the caring and dedication of staff and parents at Paces, she is passionate in participating to its continued success.
