Currently I teach in a medium sized school in an urban area of Belfast. We are a dual form entry school and my role is as Foundation Stage Nurture Teacher. I take a small group of children from P1 and P2 with Social Emotional Behavioural Needs and work with them for anywhere between two and four terms. My role is to help settle them to learn, to teach them regulation strategies, social skills and get them ready to succeed in a mainstream classroom.
Areas that I’m passionate about are: social and emotional development, learning through play, engaging parents and educational technology. All of these are big themes in my classroom.
