I am currently working as the Special Needs Coordinator of a local primary school, part-time.  I am also studying for my MA in Education with the Open University.  I find my current teaching job the most satisfying ever.  I can see children developing over a period of years.   I enjoy the long term partnership with parents and colleagues to try to make the education system work for an extremely varied group of children.  

My Belmont page has some pictures of the school journey to Hindleap Waren.
