I have been a Teaching Assistant at Barlow Hall since January 1998. I love the special relationship that all the staff and children share with each other-we are one big team! I am proud of the progress our children make no matter what their abilities! Family and friends are very important to me, when I'm not at work, I spend a lot of time with them whether it be a happy occasion or to give support when it's needed. I live with my husband, Paul and son, James. We enjoy going on family holidays to Cornwall and Scarborough. My hobbies include baking-I'm making mistakes and learning as I go! I also love to read and I hope my enthusiasm encourages others to find enjoyment in books!
