I am currently an EYFS SEN teacher for a new cohort of children that joined our school in the Autumn Term. Since working within a Special School, I have worked with children between the ages of 4 - 12 years old with different needs (ASD and moderate learning difficulties.) My favourite part of my job is interactions with children and seeing progress specifically with communication and how much this can change a child's life.
Hi I’m Aniesa. I’m an occupational therapist working with children and young people in and around Greater London, and Surrey. I have been working with children and their families and teachers for over 20 years. I love the independence that working through occupational therapy can give a child. Independence leads to greater success and achievement, no matter how small the task may seem. Success and achievement to me means being able to contribute to our community. I have a husband who bakes, an 18 year old who is soon off to uni, a 16 year old who loves maths, one crazy therapy dog, 2 cats, and I love long walks in the forest.
I'm the head of science at a school in London. I love all science, but particularly chemistry. When I'm not teaching I try to get outdoors as much as I can, getting involved with hiking, photography and gardening. I'm also getting pretty good at making arts and crafts animals with my three year old daughter!
Hello everyone, I'm Mrs Bramble. I am currently a year 1 teacher at a school in Birmingham. I have been teaching for 8 years now and it’s not just a job, it’s a part of who I am. I love working with children, making learning hands on, exploring new adventures within the classroom and ensuring all our learning is fun and active. When I’m not at school, I adore exploring new places with my husband and two boys. The last place we enjoyed exploring was a little town near York whilst we stayed in Great Yarmouth.
I am Head of Year at a school in Birmingham. I have 9 years' experience of teaching throughout KS2 and am passionate about optimising every teaching opportunity to improve outcomes for pupils. I love running (especially at the moment!) and reading- when I find the time.
Speech and Language Therapy
I have been working as an NHS Speech and Language Therapist for 25 years in a variety of settings including special schools, day centres, colleges and a children's hospital. For the past 18 years I have been leading a team of therapists who work with children and young people from 0-19 who have complex health and/or communication needs. Like most therapists I have a broad range of skills but have particular expertise in AAC (alternative and augmentative communication) and dysphagia (feeding and swallowing). I am based within a primary special school for part of my week and really value being able to work as part of the the teaching and therapy team to meet the needs of our children and families. Outside of work I have a busy family life but like to make time for creative writing and crafts.
Mr Di Salvo
Hi! I’m Mr Di Salvo an art teacher at a school in Kettering. I also work as a Specialist Leader in Education in art for my trust. I studied Fine Art at the University of Derby, after completing my degree, I wanted to inspire others to create and enjoy art as much as I do and so this led me to teaching. I really enjoy teaching students new and exciting processes and ideas and trying to make learning fun, I love making mistakes as it shows we’re trying something different. I hope you enjoy our journey.
I am the Principal of a primary school in London, and I also teach English and British History at Key Stage 2. I have an MA in Modern History from the University of St. Andrews, and I completed my PGCE at the London Institute of Education in 2014. I have worked with my academy trust since 2014. I have worked closely with the trust's Curriculum Centre on the development of new, high-quality curriculum programmes for schools with the trust. I was the History Lead in the Curriculum Fund pilot and supported with the piloting of the trust's curricula in a group schools in Folkestone.
Hi I'm Anele. I'm an occupational therapist working with children and young people at The Lighthouse Clinic, Surrey. I have enjoyed working with families for more than 20 years. I strongly believe that our sensory and motor systems are the drivers to help us learn in school. I help teachers adapt their lessons and the learning environment to help children and young people become independent learners. I believe that being playful and having fun helps us build resilience and independence. When I'm not in the classroom, I enjoy canoeing and baking and being a mum to my two teenagers.
Miss Harris is no ordinary teacher - I am secretly a chameleon and can change into anything I want to be. I can be a wizard in Maths, an explorer in Geography or even better, a super hero in PE. After studying Physical and Sport Education at St Mary’s University in London, I became a teacher to share my love for learning. I teach all lessons in Primary to some wonderful children at a school in London. In my spare time, I am a dedicated runner and can often be seen running around royal parks like Bushy Park. I am fond of going to the gym, reading and yoga.
