Meet the Heart Space Team
Ms Proctor (Heart Space Specialist Teacher (Moderate and Complex Needs))
I am an experienced teacher of students with 15 years SEND across KS2, KS3 and KS4. I have worked as a KS2 and KS3 whole curriculum teacher within specialist provisions during this time delivering core subjects as well as French, Humanities and the arts. I am a passionate specialist teacher of music and drama, having completed my undergraduate studies in Music at the University of Huddersfield before completing my teacher training at Heritage Park Community School in 2007. Following my passion for the arts, I have successfully adapted a variety of Shakespeare works to a South Yorkshire setting which were performed as part of the Sheffield Children’s’ Festival at various theatre venues across the city, including the Crucible and Library Theatres with groups of disadvantaged and SEND young people from across the city. I am an advocate for creativity and strive to implement this into an engaging and enriching curriculum for my pupils.
I am an active member of the local community and sing soprano with Fox Valley Voices choir as well as being part of the running committee for the Valley Music Festival in Stocksbridge and Deepcar. I am an ardent supporter of the local Christmas carols and can be found sharing them with my local community throughout December having learnt them as a child in Stannington.
Out of school, I like to spend time with my two daughters baking, reading or being crafty. I am a big fan of stories, especially Harry Potter and books by David Walliams. I am also very fond of my cats, George and Hazel and can usually be found on my terrace on a Friday spending time with them and my girls, dreaming about future trips to France.
