Fortunately Emma Taylor, a former teacher, mum of 3 and The Ready to Learn Mum has some tips that will help home-schooling in lockdown. Read on and feel more confident and prepared!
Hi, I’m Emma, mum of three and a qualified primary school teacher with over 12 years’ experience. I was a teacher for many years in an outstanding Primary School in north London. I’ve taught across years 1-6 and was a phonics leader for the borough of Islington. In my last year I was SENCO (special needs co-ordinator) working alongside families and pupils who needed extra learning support. I am now a full time mum as well as a local tutor, parent governor and ‘The Ready to Learn Mum’!
