Hi everyone, I am Geri Durkin. I work in Key Stage 2 as a teaching assistant. I have been at Park Grove since 2011. I support pupils with their English and Maths in the mornings, as well as supporting the class teacher. I also work with small groups of children to help them have a better understanding of the tasks and achieve their learning targets.
I am a mum of two daughters, which takes up much of my spare time. I do enjoy decorating, shopping and dining out. I obtained my level 2 and 3 CACHE Teaching Assistant qualifications at York College. During my placements, I worked at Osbaldwick Primary School and St. Oswalds Primary School.
I have enjoyed working at Park Grove, everyone is very friendly, we are a great team and all are aiming for the same goals, to help the pupils learn, achieve and grow into confident learners. I believe my contributions within the classroom have had a positive learning effect and I hope the children have enjoyed it as much as I have.
