His enthusiasm, brilliant sense of humour, ready smile and positivity are infectious
Michael’s particular ability to inspire and motivate others, irrespective of age or personal circumstances, individually or in groups, is a particular professional and personal strength that he possesses, reflected in his abilities to listen deeply and empathetically and to respond appropriately.
His storytelling and scenario depictions, stemming from his interest in people, his extensive reading and interest in literature and his dramatic and presentation skills are integral ‘tools of his trade.’
The same can also be said of his musical abilities as someone who has studied music from the age of 7, growing up in a musical family, he performs both as a solo artist and as a band member and regularly uses his songwriting and musical skills as integral to his range of services.
“Michael worked as a class teacher at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School from September 2015 to August 2016. During this time he established himself as a valued member of the team due to his passion and wholehearted commitment to providing the best education for every child in his care and his ability to relate to all members of the diverse school community with ease. His boundless positivity motivated children to achieve their best and develop a love of learning through a “can do” attitude. He inspired disaffected learners to take risks, develop resilience and believe that they could achieve. He continually looked for ways to develop professionally, respecting and learning from the experience of other colleagues and setting himself personal challenges.” Hilary Cobb, Educational Consultant
