Introducing Abbie Deeming


FullSizeRenderHello, I’m Abbie Deeming and I am one of the tutors on the FDLT course.  I will be working with both year 1 and year 2 groups across all three sites so I look forward to meeting you all; I also have some teaching on the BALT course as well.

I originally trained as an Infants Teacher and taught in Berkshire but the majority of my teaching career has been in Further Education in Stoke-on-Trent and Derbyshire.  In FE I taught a mixture of level 2, 3 and higher education courses in early years, education and for teaching assistants.  My main areas of interest are child development, theories of learning (including emotional intelligence), motivation, behaviour management and safeguarding.

In my spare time I enjoy crafting activities and science fiction.
