    Inclusion Teacher

    Ms Samira Latinotti

    Samira Latinotti has been committed to her passion for teaching children for over fifteen years. After graduating in Clinical Psychology and working as a counsellor, she realised that her true passion was being a teacher, the kind who inspires children to recognise and develop their talents and achieve their potential. She worked across EYFS, KS1 and KS2, both in International schools abroad and state schools in UK and she believes that all of these diverse experiences have been immensely enriching and rewarding so far, both personally and professionally. Samira is originally from Italy, although she moved to UK for the past six years where she completed her Primary PGCE with a Specialism in teaching children who are learning English as an additional language, and worked as a Primary teacher in a school in Birmingham. She is a keen traveller and throughout her life she has lived in several interesting places in Africa, USA, Saudi Arabia and Europe, and finds her upbringing to have broadened up her mind and gifted her with a great spirit of adaptation. Samira joined BSKL team this year and with absolute delight. She was previously part of the Learning Support Department with a focus on EAL and SEN children.
