I have worked as an LSA at Woodhall for nearly 7 years, starting in Nursery, then moving to Reception for a few years and am now settled in my third year with Mr Ruse in Year 1. As well as being class based most of the time, I am Elklan trained and work with children on specific Speech and Language support and I am a trained ELSA. This allows me to spend time with children in need of emotional or social support, working through play and talk to support them to understand their emotions, build supportive relationships and gain confidence.

I am also a parent at Woodhall, with sons in year 6 and year 2. Out of school I love to spend as much time as possible with them, often outdoors, and with my other family and friends. I run regularly, currently in training for my third, and last, marathon. I love being active and practice yoga most days, but I also like nothing more than curling up with a good book.
