I joined Fusion SEND Hub as a Consultant Teacher in January 2022 and I have a specialist interest in phonics and early reading. I began my career in education 18 years ago, initially as a teaching assistant for 7 years, supporting children and young people with SEN before deciding to go to University and qualify as a teacher. I have worked in both Primary and Secondary schools across Rotherham and Sheffield in various roles such as Key Stage 1 Lead, teaching year 1 and 2, Read Write Inc Lead, Deputy Safeguarding Lead and SENCo.
Throughout all of these roles, my main passion and focus has been working with children with SEND. I completed my SENCo Award after becoming SENCo in 2017, further adding to my knowledge.
I am looking forward to using the skills I have gained to support children and staff in different schools, to ensure Quality First Teaching and ensuring the correct support is in place for children and young people with SEND.
