Gemma Stockley

Teaching Assistant

My name is Gemma and I joined Doubletrees School in October 2020 after seeking to further develop my SEN knowledge and skills.

I moved from Kent to Cornwall with my only daughter in 2014, learnt to drive and trained to work in schools.  Curriculum specialism or interests: Maths, adapting learning methods, supporting those with Autism. Hugely interested in learning and using Makaton.

After studying Forensic Science BSc with Honours at The University of Kent as a mature student, I planned to work in a laboratory or train to become a science teacher. I love science! My daughter was born and life took a different path. Once in Cornwall, knowing I wanted to work in schools I trained and got experience in a village school. I began my SEN career as a 1:1 TA in a mainstream school with an ARB. By my second year I had been placed in the ARB and I had found my passion! I spent another 3 years with wonderful learners, learning new ways to support in education and even leading the class for a short time. I have a particular interest in Autism and have trained to increase my understanding and how best to support learners.
