I have worked in schools as a Teaching Assistant since 2000; firstly at a mainstream infant school, then moving to Cliffdale in 2008.
I have seen lots of changes over the years and it is lovely to see the amazing school Cliffdale has now become.
I really enjoy working at Cliffdale and seeing all the young people blossom and develop as they move through the school.
I became a governor to gain a greater understanding of the other areas of the school and to be a voice for the staff, which I enjoy. It is rewarding to be able to make an extra contribution.
