Mrs Helen LeRoy
Year 1 Teacher
I began my career as a Registered Nurse for people with learning disabilities. Having taken time out to raise a family, I decided that I wanted to move away from education. I worked at a pre-school initially and also volunteered as a Parent Governor. This then led me to becoming a Teaching Assistant at various schools in West Sussex (including 6 years at Estcots). I love the atmosphere and ethos at Estcots and it is an absolute priviledge to be surrounded by children and adults who are inquisitive and have a love for learning. I decided to take the plunge last year and head back to Uni to complete my PGCE in Primary Teaching. This was the toughest year of my life so far but now, having my own class, I would say it was totally worth it!
