Job Title: Teaching Assistant
Time at Airthrie: 7 Years (July 2010)
Specialist Subject(s): Teaching Assistant
Qualification(s): BSc, Edexcel Level 2 NVQ Supporting Teaching and Learning
Originally from Cardiff I studied for a degree in Sport and Exercise Science followed by a post graduate qualification in Physiotherapy. Subsequently I worked as a physiotherapist for a Sports Company and with private clients before having a career break to look after my two daughters, Sophie and Esmee. When the girls joined Airthrie I became a parent volunteer in the classroom working in all school years. Following this I was offered the chance to become a Teaching Assistant and was delighted to join the staff working mainly in Year 2 and Year 3. I have since gained my NVQ in Supporting Teaching and Learning at Level 2 and love my work with pupils helping them individually and in small groups.
