I am a competent and confident teacher with sixteen years experience of working with all ages and abilities, from two years through to adults. I am passionate and enthusiastic about what I do and strive on being a professional.

My specialist areas have been working with people with a range of learning disabilities, additional needs, and challenging behaviour in both residential and educational settings. 

I enjoy sharing my knowledge and expertise to help increase awareness of various people's needs and teaching people some of the best and most appropriate approaches and strategies to support the people in their care and help to enhance their quality of life and make it as fulfilling as possible, as i believe that everyone deserves this opportunity regardless of age, background, culture or needs.
