Hi I am Heather Smith based within Dumfries and Galloway, although I actually live in South Ayrshire. I work within primary inclusion, with two days as principal teacher of inclusion and three days as an inclusion teacher. I have been working in and around inclusion for about eight years and was previously in primary mainstream.

I have joined this course as it seemed to fit well with the work I have done last session for my Post Graduate diploma in educational research, which I completed last month, particularly around the themes of participation and pupil/teacher voice.
