Hello, I am Miss Roberts. I have been a teacher at Ingram Road for 6 years and have made lots of amazing friends here! I have a Maltipoo dog whose name is Louis and he is the best. He loves napping and going for long walks in the countryside.
I support Liverpool Football Club and really enjoy going out for dinner.
