Experience, training and skills
I graduated from Goldsmiths University of London with a bachelor’s degree in Education, Culture and Society. I am passionate about Education and I have extensive experience working with children with social and communication difficulties, challenging behaviour, and other learning difficulties. I have experience teaching and supporting children with additional needs including ASD, PDA, ADHD, GDD, PMLD, BESD, visual impairment, Dyslexia.
I have experience working with children and young people in a number of different educational and community settings such as mainstream schools, independent schools, art clubs, charities, and hospital schools.
I believe in a creative child-centred approaches.Therefore, arts and creativity play an important role in my teaching style. According to the Emilia Reggio there are a hundred different ways of thinking, of discovering and of learning. For instance, movement, drawing, music, pretend play. Each of these ‘Hundred Languages’ must be valued and nurtured.
In the past I worked as a teacher in an Independent School. I was lucky enough to work with children from different age groups (key stage 1,2 and 3). I also worked as an ABA (Applied behaviour analysis) tutor so I supported children with social and communicational difficulties, as well as with challenging behaviours. I also have experience helping young people to develop their independent skills (such as cooking, travelling independently, self-care etc…)
I am currently working as a SEN Teaching Assistant. I plan and deliver one-to-one lessons and I also support children within the class. I work closely with a speech and language therapist and other professionals. I would like to continue to support and empower children and young people to fulfil their potential.
My Teaching Philosophy
I believe in providing personalised, appropriately challenging and innovative learning opportunities to empower children and young people.
I believe in focusing on abilities and supporting possible difficulties in creative ways using a tailor-made programme to meet the students’ specific needs.
It is important that all achievements are recognised as every children and young people is a unique individual.
