Primary Learning Support Assistant (SEN)
Are you afraid of me? I'm an 11-year-old girl who likes music, going to the cinema with my mates and stuffing my face with popcorn. I'm not a pink kind of girl and really hate school. My teacher told me not to come back. No one wants to help me. Do you? What if I told you I get angry very quickly? Sometimes I don't know why. Sometimes I end up kicking, biting and screaming. When you try to make me read a book I might swear and throw stuff at you. When I go to the cinema I get so excited by the loud noise and bright colours I panic and throw popcorn everywhere. Sometimes I get on with my mum, but a lot of the time I hate her. Still want to help me?
