I qualified as a teacher in the UK and taught as a classroom teacher for a number of years in the UK. It was during this time that I realised the number of children in the school I taught who had learning difficulties and who were failing to meet national benchmarks
My main passion in life is teaching children, and in particular working with children with a range of learning needs to overcome their difficulties, achieve and grow.
