I have lived in the community for the last 16 years and my children attended St John's in 2004. The school has played a major role in the development of their lives and boasts a caring, nurturing and positive environment for them to thrive in. I love working at St John's because it has a family-oriented environment, with all working together to make the school a happy place to learn. My role as a Midday Supervisor gives me many opportunities to be creative; do something new each day and explore new ways of having fun and build relationships with children. There is a strong, friendly and supportive team to work alongside, which makes my role even more enjoyable. I recognise that each day is precious and each child has their own individual challenges and needs, therefore this enables me to support, listen and help them to feel positive about their day. I have the privilege of working with amazing children everyday and it is wonderful to see them progress and most of all, have fun!

I really enjoy working at St John's, especially with the young children who are so unpredictable from one day to the next - no day is ever the same! I love watching them grow up and change year after year. Every day at school is a new challenge, I feel very glad to work at a school where I feel part of an amazing team.
I've worked at St John's for over 20 years now, I like being part of a team which is positive and friendly and where every child matters. Being a Midday Supervisor is part of that; helping to make lunchtimes happy and enjoyable. In the dinner hall I encourage them to try different foods and in the playground I organise and play games. To see and help a child smile, laugh and have fun makes the job very rewarding.

As a child, I never liked school and could never imagine that I would work in one or go back into education myself! Things changed with my son was born. At the age of 7 he was diagnosed with ADHD and I decided to find ways to help him make school life easier. I started to volunteer at St John's by reading with children and working alongside the teacher. I really enjoyed it! I knew then that I wanted to help children achieve, no matter what the barriers or challenges were. Since then, I have gone back to college to gain more qualifications and now work as a Midday Supervisor. In my role, no day is ever the same. You never know what each day brings and that's what I love about it. We work as a team and support each other. That's what makes my job so rewarding and enjoyable. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it!
I love working with children and watching them grow! I am passionate about children learning to read and I enjoy books and stories. Working at St John's is a pleasure and more like being part of a family. I feel like I belong here.
I have been involved in education in various ways ever since I was young. I started by giving home
tuition to children of my neighbours while I was at high school to help them to do well. I also taught
classical singing and dance. My mother encouraged me to work in education.
I believe every child has a right to have education and in my home country of Bangladesh I taught
street children, taught in the Mother Teresa Orphanage and developed learning materials for ethnic
minority children in their own language.
Since coming to St John’s I have enjoyed helping children to achieve their best as well as seeing
them develop their interests and character. I am learning every day and every step with my
awesome colleagues and wonderful students. St John’s is like my second family!
