Hello my name is Katie Wishart and I am the new Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator ( Start date June 2012) .
I grew up in Cambridge and after studying and teaching in different places have recently returned to be closer to family and friends. I am married and live in St. Ives with my two boys aged 3 years and 5 years old.
I qualified with a B.Ed (Hons) Primary Studies and my main area was Art.
I have been teaching for 18 years, mainly in Key Stage 1 and Foundation Stage and have worked in a variety of village and city schools in Hertfordshire, Leeds, London, Nottingham and now Huntingdonshire. This has meant that I have worked with children from various backgrounds and with differing needs.
In the past I have been Co-ordinator for Art and Music. I have been SENDCo in two previous schools for 1 year and 7 years and it is a position in which I enjoy the challenges and strive to make a difference.
