"I am a teacher at a Special School. I work with children and young people with complex needs, including Autism, Moderate and Severe Learning Difficulties, Downs Syndrome and Epilepsy. Although the work can at times be challenging, everyone I teach has talent, and I feel privileged to help them make the most of that talent. I am also privileged to work with a team of amazing colleagues, who go far beyond the call of duty in supporting our young people. Thank you, Katie, for nominating me!"
