Hi I'm Ann,
After completing my NNEB Nursery Nurse Qualification and gaining my Qualified Teacher Status, I started my career working at a special school with students who have profound multiple learning difficulties, challenging behaviours or Autism.
I worked for more than twenty years as a class teacher before becoming head of the post 16 department.
I thoroughly enjoyed my career in special education as no two days were ever the same!
Throughout my career I have been involved in the running of a summer play scheme at another secondary special school in Northampton and provided sessional care for students by taking them out and involving them in the community which I enjoyed very much.
Two years ago I retired from my teaching post and life became very different, however working at Fundays on a part time basis has given me a chance to continue to work in the field which I love.
Many of the clients at the day centre are ex-students from my school days.
