Learning Support Assistant Year 3

Tia Clarke – Learning Support Assistant – Year 3

Hello, my name is Tia, and I am a psychology graduate and a Year 3 LSA. Although my time here has only just begun, I have loved every moment and have already experienced and created so many wonderful memories.

I enjoy working at Grinling Gibbons primary school so much and love what this school stands for. Every child is important and plays a huge part in what makes this school great and every member of staff alongside them is what makes this such a special place to be!

Whether in the classroom, the playground or in an after-school club, every experience working with children is unique and filled with endless opportunities for me to learn and grow.

Additional Responsibilities

• Modern Foreign Languages Lead

I am an experienced Primary school teacher, who has a great love for teaching! I have extensive experience teaching across all year groups and have also had the opportunity to work for two years as Learning Support Coordinator in Venezuela. As a new member of staff, I am excited to be part of the Phoenix Federation and look forward to the journey ahead.

I am passionate about teaching and strive to provide opportunities for all the children to succeed and to reach their full potential. I have a strong passion for creative writing and use various strategies to ignite the children’ s creativity, imagination and more importantly, instilling a lifelong love of learning.

I believe that when children learn, they can increase their general knowledge and expand their vocabulary. Only by mastering effective strategies, can a child learn the necessary knowledge and information, which will enable them to excel. I thoroughly enjoy working with children and nothing beats the feeling of knowing I can make a positive contribution to their growth and help to shape their future.

Hi, I’m Miss Lesley Lawrence and I am a TA in Year 3. I have been working at Grinling Gibbons for the last 25 years and I have had the pleasure of teaching in every year group.
I love coming to work and enjoy supporting and working with the children I see every day.
Being part of the community has taught me lots of new things and I couldn’t wish for a better place to work.
