As a dyslexic teacher the importance of creating and inspiring a stimulating learning environment that caters for all abilities and supports children’s development is extremely important to me. I thrive on using my own disability to help those with SEN and children with learning difficulties of their own and seeing them make progress. After many years as a volunteer within the Air Training Corps and since becoming a father my desire to move into teaching intensified. I felt there was a shortage of male role models for young children, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds. In my last school I had a large proportion of SEN children and have gained valuable experience working with children with Dyslexia, Autism, anxiety, Irlan Syndrome, PTSD, limited phonics knowledge and ADHD. Using Quality First Teaching as a framework I ensure all children actively participate in lessons through active engagement, differentiation and learning challenges. My strengths lie within Maths, Science and IT and where possible I build upon my research into experiential learning.
