My name is Jennifer Poku, my vision is to create an environment that is warm and relaxing for young people to learn. I am passionate about EAL (English as an additional language) and also literacy that is culturally appropriate and inclusive to children. I believe representation is important in literature. I came to England as a child and have gone from not understanding what is being said in class as an EAL student to university and now providing a service that is of representative in this area of education.
I studied BA English at London South Bank University where I was introduced to a vast wealth of writers from different races and nationalities, which has enriched my life since.
I have two boys, 14 and 2 years old and a dog called Didier. If I could get my dog to read I probably would.
