NAME: Pauline Maskell
TYPE: Support Staff Governor
I have been married for eighteen years and have two teenage daughters, both who have attended Crosshall Junior School in the past and now attend Longsands.
I have worked for Crosshall Junior School for nine years as a Teaching Assistant and during this time I have supported several children with various needs.
My biggest challenge was learning Braille to Grade II level in order to support two children with partial or no sight at all.
I decided to become a governor so that I could become a little bit more involved and perhaps have more say, in the day to day running of the school, not just my role in the classroom.
