Mindset is defined as the attitudes and habits that a person has. Mindset is often based on the previous experiences of the person.  It will impact how a person thinks about situations and will influence how the person responds to the situation.  Why is this important?

My favourite mottos are: -"Leave no child behind"​ -"If I can't learn the way you teach, will you please teach me the way I learn?" -"It takes a village to raise a child." These three mottos embody how I feel about teaching and learning.  It inspires me that I learn so much from the students that I teach.  We are all forever learning. I was born in England and move to Canada when I was a child.  I lived in West Africa from age 7 to 11 and moved back to Canada afterwards.  Growing up as I did, I can appreciate the challenges and the benefits that a third-culture individual experiences.  My initial career path was in Architecture.  After many gratifying years in that field and the birth of my two lovely daughters, I decided to get my teaching degree.  I taught in Canada, Australia and Africa and moved to The Netherlands.   I worked at The Lighthouse Special Education School for 5 years as head teacher for the older students.  The Lighthouse provides a safe and structured learning environment for children with complex special educational needs who are restricted in attending mainstream schools.  As part of the Haagse Schoolvereeninging (HSV), it is the only International Primary School in The Netherlands to offer Special Education in English.  My students had a range of special educational needs including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).   After The Lighthouse, I moved to The International School of The Hague (ISH) as a Learning Support Specialist in the Secondary School.  During this time I also attained a Master’s Degree in Education, Inclusion and Special Educational Needs.  The focus of my studies was on children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as Languages, Literacies and Dyslexia.  I am an Associate Member of The British Dyslexia Association.  At the ISH, I work with students with Specific Learning Difficulties and Challenges.  This includes but is not limited to Autism Spectrum Disorder, (ASD), Selective Mutism, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Anxiety.  I work with students on a 1:1 basis, in small groups and also within the classroom.  I am quite passionate about supporting students in their learning.  The support involves having collaboration with the students' parents, teachers, external support personnel and the school's leadership teams.  Being a learning support specialist is challenging and incredibly gratifying.
