I have always had a passion to work with young people. In 2009 I qualified as a Level 3 nursery nurse. I went on to do a BA (Hons) In Psychology and Child Development. During the three-year course I was able to work part time in different children centres, nurseries and children’s homes. I worked with all ages from 3 month old babies to 16-year-old teenagers.
When I qualified in 2012, I worked within numerous Special Schools, with both primary and secondary aged pupils, which I fully enjoyed. I spent most of this time supporting young people in a Residential School for children with SEMH and associated behaviours.
In 2015, I went back to university to complete my PGCE. While training I worked with children in reception to year 6. I loved the different challenges all year groups brought, enjoying the discovery of different strategies to promote and develop all pupils’ individual learning. I graduated as an ‘outstanding’ teacher and got a job in a Primary school working in the EYFS with Reception.
I loved every minute of working in a school setting, however decided to go travelling to Australia. After a year, I cut this short as I was asked to go and teach in the Middle East (Qatar). Here, I worked with EAL children, again in early years.
When returning to England I began working as an Educational Welfare Officer for Attend EDC. I am excited to now work as a Senior Teacher / Tutor with Visionary Individual Pathways within the Stop Gap provision.
In my personal life I am a mum to a very beautiful little boys. I enjoy spending time making lots of happy memories with my family.
