Some of my work and what others have to say.
We want her back NOW!! Her professionalism and coaching was breath taking, and she did this while dealing with her own grief - she led us.
Monica integrated well with the young people she came into contact. The activities and sessions Monica offered allowed for the development of educational capability, confidence and reflective abilities. At all times Monica presented as confident, enthusiastic and attuned to the needs of those she worked with.
Monica has always maintained good relationships with the young people she has worked with gaining their respect and trust and building helpful bridges between home and school for the young people.
Monica undertook steps to make essential improvements to SEND systems, procedures and practices. This development work was related to targets for school improvement which contributed to the school being removed from special measures in September 2015.
Monica has a very child centred approach to teaching and is willing to make use of her therapy training when appropriate, offering ideas for new ways of working and creative solutions to problems presented. Monica willingly engaged in a coaching programmes to develop her skills in teaching of KS1, KS2. Monica also willingly engaged with training towards her being able to achieve the SENCo Award
