Primary school teacher

I’m a primary school teacher because…

Alysha sat at her desk.

I love making lessons engaging and visual to give children good memories.

In my first job at a special needs school, being profoundly deaf helped me find alternative ways to communicate with severely autistic children.

For my Teaching and Learning degree, I did my training in a mainstream school, which has a hearing impaired resource base. The communication support workers could sign and the children learnt British Sign Language as part of the curriculum.

I feel very supported at school; my colleagues know my needs and help with behaviour management (as I don’t hear the children’s whispers!).

My mum instilled in me the need to fight harder than hearing friends to achieve whatever I wanted. It might take a bit longer, but never give up on your dreams. Ask for help and keep a positive outlook.
