Lesley Jewitt is a specialist support assistant at Manor Green School. She lives in Maidenhead and she is married with three boys. She has worked in education for just over twenty years now. Her first job in education was in a mainstream school, working with a student in reception class who had contracted Meningitis. This resulted in the loss of his hearing which obviously had a negative impact on his behaviour. When he left primary she realised her calling was with special needs and came to Manor Green School. She has never looked back.
