Hi everyone, I am Geri Durkin and I am now into my fifth year at Park Grove. I am working in class 6 as a Teaching Assistant with Miss Land. I support pupils with their English and Maths and work with small groups of children to help them achieve their learning targets.
I am a mum to two lovely girls aged 12 and 14, which takes up much of my spare time. I realised I had a passion to help children succeed so enrolled at York College and obtained my level 2 and 3 CACHE Teaching Assistant qualifications. During my placements , I worked at Osbaldwick Primary School and St. Oswalds Primary School.
I have enjoyed my time at Park Grove, everyone is very friendly, we are a great team and we are all working hard to help the pupils achieve and grow into confident learners. . It makes me feel proud when I watch them grow and succeed . 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.
