I am a parent to Daisy in Year 4 at Framfield (as well as Logan who will start school next year). I have also supported my 2 step-sons through their Primary schooling also at Framfield. The boys came to live with us full time 5 years ago and we found Framfield incredibly supportive throughout this process.
I gained a PGCE in 7-14 Geography 13 years ago at Canterbury Christ Church University. I taught in both Primary and Secondary schools in my placements. During my secondary placement I had the opportunity to teach a group of SEN students which has led me to a career in teaching young people with a range of barriers to learning.
I currently teach Primary and Post 16 students at “Step by Step School” for children with autism in Sharpthorne near East Grinstead. In 2014 I completed my National Professional Qualification in Middle Leadership (NPQML) which has allowed me to develop knowledge, skills, and confidence in leading teams within education.
Additional knowledge and skills I have gained include …. Lead Coordinator for ASDAN (award organisation regulated by Ofqual), Team Teach handling techniques, First Aid in an educational setting, up to date on current Child Protection/Safeguarding/On Line Safety training, and trained in teaching children with autism supported by Applied Behaviour Therapy.
