About Me

I am a confident, punctual, reliable and self-motivated individual who has a passion in supporting children and helping them to discover who they want to be whilst promoting their individuality and uniqueness. I am very creative and always use my initiative throughout the day as well as having an excellent level of verbal and written English. I can work as part of a team and I can work independently. I am a fast learner and I enjoy learning new things. I enjoy challenging myself to expand my knowledge and improve on my teaching techniques. I believe I am very mature, but fun, when working with children and I have received feedback from my placements stating I develop very good bonds with the children and staff, and I am very happy and friendly. I am very ambitious, enthusiastic and driven to achieve my future goals. I am very excited about the work I produced whilst at college and received very positive feedback from my tutors and placement supervisors. I have also got my own transport with a full driving licence.

My Experience

Through my two year college course, I gained over 800 hour's of placement experience with two primary schools and one day nursery. I loved my placement work. Through my placements, I worked with children from 9 months old, up to 8 years of age. Through a couple of my placement, I worked with children with additional needs such as downs syndrome and epilepsy. One of these children used sign language to communicate and I have also worked with multiple children who had English as their second language. During my placement's, I have planned, led, observed and supported a variety of different activities based around the seven stages of learning and development. This means I have excellent knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage as I used it throughout the my time at college to plan the activities, mark the children's work and to complete most of my college assignments. In addition to this, I understand how vital it is to read and understand the policies and procedures in the setting. While at my placements I ensured I read all the policies and procedures and asked questions about any information which I did not understand to ensure I understood the policies and procedures. I also have excellent understand of safeguarding children, having read a file about safeguarding children, having studied a unit in college about safeguarding children and after doing a training course of safeguarding.
When I attended my placement in the private day care, I often led group time on a morning and afternoon where we would sing the day song, ask about the weather and greet all the children. This helped me develop confidence to interact with a large group of children. I also completed creative activities with the children and helped to comfort the children when they would get upset.
When I was at my nursery placement, I often organised the children's learning journeys as well as supported the staff with activities during the day, encouraged the children to apply mathematics to the activities they were doing and assisted with trips by having a group of children to look after,
My last placement was in a reception class and year 1 class where I was for a year. At this placement, I organised an intervention folder where I would read with the children twice a week and I would support the few children who had difficulty writing their name and reading the low level books. The intervention folder made me really proud of the progress I helped the children achieve. When I began the folder, four children were unable to write their names and on my last day, those four children could write their name and read a simple book with a few words in. I really enjoyed one to one time with the children as it helped me to get to know the children and to adapt my teaching technique to suit each individual child. It also helped me to understand the different milestones which the children were at. The intervention folder required a lot of patients and perseverance as well as organisation skills. When in the year one class, I would support the children who required assistance with their class work. I would also mark the children's work and do guided reading each week whilst changing the children's books to the suitable reading level colour and number. At this placement, I developed excellent relationships with the staff and the children.
These placements helped me develop dedication, confidence, punctuality and reliability. I attended the private day care in the Christmas holidays to help out when I was needed and I attended both reception class's graduations. I helped one reception class with their Christmas play outside my usual placement times.
