  • Description

    Hi there,

    - I am currently working in a mainstream school in the city of Southampton and have done for the past 3 years now. The school is for children aged between 7 - 11
    - I work with a child on a 1 -1 basis who is SEN (Special Education needs).
    - I have been on many school trips with children including residential trips to outdoor places, where we have learnt about nature and teamwork. I have normally had to take responsibility for a group of children on these trips
    - I run an after school club called 'Creative Club' which is an art based club
    - I really want to learn about other styles of education and what else is out there for educating children. I believe that children's education should be a journey of love and interest rather than 'box-ticking' and should be motivational for them
    - I am quite a calm individual, very friendly and like to be useful
    - Everyday I ride my bike to work and back and like to keep healthy
    -I have been growing vegetables since I was 9 or 10 years old, I've grown carrots, parsnips, swede, peas, spinach, sweetcorn, strawberries...
    -I previously volunteered with a elderly care charity for about a year and a half and I was a 'befriender' where I visited a lonely elderly gentleman once a week to provide companionship
    -I have done 3 workaways before, 2 in Belgium and 1 in France.

    I hope all of this gives you a positive impression of me as I feel I am a positive person and want to be engaged with projects and people. I care for people and the world as a whole.
