After completing my degree and two post-graduate diplomas I worked for over 10 years in the field of substance mususe in a theraputic and educational context. Once I had my children, one now in secondary school and one in primary school I decided on a career and quallified as a Teaching Assistant.
Working as a TA has proved to be the perfect job, one which is both stimulating and rewarding. Now in my second year at Buckden School I cna’t imagine doing anything else. During this time my job has encompassed a variety of roles – running targeted maths and literacy groups, social groups and 1-1 working with children, as well as support in the classroom.
