I would describe myself as Passionate, pro-active and committed. I started teaching in 2007 and worked across a range of schools: big, small, mainstream, specialist and independent. I also have experience working with children who have profound learning and physical disabilities which has given me a greater understanding of a range of children’s needs. Everywhere I’ve worked it was clear to me that my passion lies in helping children with special educational needs get what they need to reach their full potential. I come from a big family so I love getting involved in the hustle and bustle of family and school life. I strive for positive outcomes in everything I do, and at a time where the education system is in a period of change, I aim to inform, support, and motivate children, parents and teachers which I feel confident, eager and equipped to do.
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.
