I currently work in an autistic school mainly with children aged 15-16. I have completed TeamTeach training which outlines a number of safe ways to de-escalate a situation and restrain a child if necessary. I deal with children who have a wide range of difficulties from ADHD, autism to PDA and dyslexia. A lot of the work I do is one-to-one so I do teach them a great deal.
I have always been passionate about children and I believe I have the patience and initiative to work with them daily. I am currently doing a Psychology degree with Open University. My understanding is that Psychology will give me an insight in to the way that children learn, the way they adapt in a social environment and their general behaviours. From my previous teaching experience, I gained organisational skills which enables me to be increasingly efficient each day. My goal is to inspire children to learn, make coming in to school an enjoyable yet challenging task and push them all to the best of their ability.
My experience through school, college and my prosperous job roles has given me the ability to absorb information at a fast rate and become a natural leader. I am able to adapt to all ethnicities and intellectual levels, to lead by example at all times and I believe I have an imperceptible presence which can control a classroom and demand a mutual level of respect.
I have always been interested in working with children, whilst I have tried to pursue a career in other professions, I have realised that there is no other position that I can be truly happy in. I have gained a huge number of skills and general experience from my current and previous roles. I have dealt and worked with a wide range of people which has definitely helped me establish ways to adapt in certain environments. I will be starting my Psychology degree in September and once I am fully qualified, I hope to follow my teaching dream full time.
