Emma has over 23 years’ experience of teaching children and young people with special educational needs.

Having first qualified with a primary BEd honors degree Emma dedicated her career to her passion of teaching children and young people with special educational needs.  She has been fortunate to work with students, carers and families in a variety of settings – as a class teacher, senior leader, education care worker supporting looked after children and foster carers and working for Manchester City Councils inclusion service.

Emma came to Seashell in 2012 and has since achieved a MEd in autism and SEN. Seashell ignited her passion for teaching through an individual curriculum that uses the skills and knowledge of an in-house multi-disciplinary team to ensure the children and young people live their best lives and learn through a motivating and aspirational curriculum.

Outside of work Emma enjoys time with her family and friends having fun and keeping fit in a variety of ways. She is happiest on a beach or watching snooker. It is her life dream to be a part of a PhD project exploring wellbeing for people with complex communication.  Or, to watch Ronnie O’Sullivan in a live crucible final!
