After completing a Psychology degree, Helen spent some time working with children who have special education needs. Working in the Royal School for the Blind in Liverpool and with autistic children in London confirmed her decision to become a primary school teacher.
Following graduation, Helen worked in an inner city London school where, in her role as geography co-ordinator, she developed a new programme of study for Geography and History in line with the new national curriculum. Helen is passionate about teaching and learning, and looks for ways to motivate and engage her students by bringing the learning alive. She had particular success with a whole school project that she led around the 2016 Rio Olympics, aimed to engage the children in learning about countries all around the world.
Helen is delighted to have been given the opportunity at DCIS and is looking forward to helping all the children be ambitious in their learning.
