Throughout my teaching career I have gained extensive skills in training and management, alongside working directly with children within their middle years. Through these roles I have seen the impact that my experience within teaching has had on my ability to assess and report on a range of issues. I have also undertaken regular academic study and professional training to ensure that I can offer feedback, allowing me to provide successful mentoring as well as assessment.
My prior role in City Year as a mentor demonstrates my dedication to facilitating learning through training and supervision, requiring awareness of the impact of small group instruction and individualized instruction. A dedicated attitude to training and development allowed me to gain the skills necessary to achieve success; while a fair, reasonable approach to feedback allowed me to instil the same in my colleagues, and to incorporate new ideas. This approach to constructive feedback also allowed me to offer structured guidance to students of all ages.
I have adhered to consistently high standards of professional conduct. I have remained passionate about gaining knowledge and experience to ensure that I can successfully fulfil each role. Having worked across a range of educational institutions, I have gained experience of and adapted to the relevant frameworks for each, both in the classroom and in simpler aspects, such as health and safety legislation. Having worked in middle years education in the an abundance of schools, I have also shown an ability to adapt swiftly and effectively in different school environments, ensuring I provide the same high standard in each. Alongside this knowledge of the practical aspects of each role I have also strived to maintain strong, professional relationships with all stakeholders and have proven valuable as a committee member. My passionate and reflective approach to ensuring an excellent education for all children has shown within my inspired enthusiasm within the educational environment. Having worked with children of all ages, and having worked extensively with children with special educational needs, spending an entire semester helping to teach English to ESL students, it is my commitment to equality, diversity and excellence in education, and in the various challenges that these values present, that has inspired my commitment to my professional development and the development of others.
