The Flying High Podcast – Laura Martin

Laura Martin is a cover supervisor at a secondary school in the Midlands. I first met her in 2020, when she had just started her journey working in schools as a Learning Support Assistant. It has been a huge period of growth for her and I was delighted that she was open to sharing her story. She says, “I was dyslexic and loathed school as a child and teenager due to my experiences. I vowed never to set foot inside a school again after collecting my GCSE results. I ended up working as chef in a junior school by chance after being made redundant, my passion for accessible education was born from seeing how the TAs gave so much to the children that they worked with”.
