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 started working at Temple Hill for approximately 11 years. I completed my teacher training at Temple Hill, I have taught amazing children throughout the school from Reception to Year 6. I have spent a considerable amount of my time at Temple Hill working with children with additional needs and their families, which I absolutely love and have a real passion for improving outcomes of all children despite challenges they and their families may face.
Since the Galaxy Trust has formed I have also worked at Oakfield with a focus on vulnerable groups, I really enjoyed the experience I gained from working across our ever growing Trust. I am now very excited to join the West Hill Inclusion team, where I hope to add to the superb work they and all the staff carry out to ensure all children have a inclusive and happy education.
When I am not working I am very busy looking after and pampering my three beautiful princesses.
