Assistant Headteacher (Inclusion)
I started teaching twelve years ago, during my career I have taught children ranging from Year One to Year Five. I have always had a keen interest in teaching and supporting children with special educational needs. As many of you know I was the SENCo at Temple Hill for a number of years before leaving in 2010. After leaving Temple Hill I went on to work as the Lead Teacher at a resourced provision for children with severe speech and language difficulties, in Deptford, South East London. During this time I was lucky enough to become a Specialist Leader of Education which enabled me to support school staff in Lewisham and across the country in order to improve the quality of provision for children with SEN. I am also a Designated Safeguarding Lead.
I am very much looking forward to a busy and challenging year ahead!
I have been a TA since 1997 previously working in Bexley. I joined West Hill in September 2007 as an SEN TA. I have HLTA status which allows me to work with a whole class, but my passion is working with the SEN children as I find this really rewarding. I have a lovely family and enjoy baking in my spare time.
