After graduating from a four year BEd Hons degree, I began my career at Colnbrook Special School in Watford. At Colnbrook I worked with pupils who had complex needs and communication difficulties. I have always been interested and eager to work with pupils with Special Educational Needs, particularly children with Autism. After a successful period at Colnbook I joined Longcause.
I joined Longcause in September 2011 as a teacher leading Physical Education and became Head of Upper School in October 2012. Working with such a committed and supportive staff has helped me realise the importance of communication and team work. Not only have I learnt and developed professionally from the staff, I have learnt from the pupils themselves. I have a real passion for getting to know the pupils that I work with. This allows me to get a better understanding of their needs and how I can help support them now and prepare them for life after Longcause!
