Miko Pacheco - Y1 Teacher and Year Group Leader
Initially, I was a little sceptical moving down to London, however, I can honestly say it has been the best possible decision for my career so far. Without the help of the school I work in in Harrow, and the connections it has, I would never have been granted such an amazing opportunity to work in such a supportive environment.
From my very first exchange school visit in Harrow in February 2017, I was amazed it wasn't that different to Liverpool (where I am from) and there was a strong sense of togetherness present. I quickly realised this was definitely the correct step for my career path. I commenced my NQT year in September 2017 at a Harrow primary school and I received the support I needed with continuous guidance from mentors and other staff members, who would always find the time to accommodate new professionals. Forming new relationships with friendly staff has been a bonus not just at my school, but staff from other Harrow schools too.
As my NQT year came to an end and I commenced my second year of teaching, I realised I would like more responsibility. With this request, I was given a TLR opportunity to lead PE & Sport across the school. With the continued guidance and support, I was beginning to grasp my new roles and responsibilities. Following on from this, more career progression opportunities became available. I was successfully appointed Year Team Leader and commenced my new role in September 2019. My responsibilities have increased but also my satisfaction of making a difference in children’s lives. I look forward to my future years in this career!
