My Teaching Philosophy

As I see each child as an individual, I create personalised learning opportunities that are based on the child's interests. I use many different methods including visual-aids, kinesthetic activities, messy play and more traditional teaching methods. Being flexible in this way is beneficial to the child and helps to promote their enthusiasm for learning.

Choose me if…

I have set up an Animal Assisted Therapy company, to help children with social, emotional and mental health needs achieve therapeutic goals with the help of my therapy dog, Frank.

I would describe my manner as calm, intuitive and approachable. I value every child I work with and take pride in creating meaningful learning experiences for them. I am a qualified teacher and have experience of working in a special needs school for children with complex needs.
