Higher Level Teaching Assistant
As a child, I remember going to numerous parents evenings and hearing 'Sophie is enthusiastic but often becomes distracted and is one of the chatty children' 'Sophie would do well if she could apply her enthusiasm and focus on the tasks been set'
I remember these so well and this has stayed with me in such a way, that effects my teaching every day. To never cap a child's curiosity or enthusiasm. To listen and learn from the child. To know their passions, interests, areas of strength and weakness and remembering that every child is an individual. If a child is not learning the way we teach, we must teach the way they learn and inspire and spark that enthusiasm that every child absolutely has, its just finding how to light it. This has grown to be my absolute passion and when we see that child who has been resistant or anxious, have that light bulb moment or wave of confidence, that's why we do what we do.
I am extremely lucky to work across all year groups and be apart of such an integral and incredible journey for the children.
