Jeanette Brady

My passion for working with children who have Special Needs or trauma in their lives, grew out of my 14-year-old self, babysitting for a family who had two children with Global learning difficulties and Epilepsy. This lead me on a path of Special Needs Academia and 35 years of teaching/training both in Secondary, Primary and Special school environments. The process of seeing children grow and flourish inspires me. Watching new teachers and teaching assistants learn how to meet the needs of different children makes me feel proud. Watching parents take pride in their children recognising that ‘Difference’ is another part of life, makes me happy. Outside of my KCDC Volunteer Advisor role in Uganda, I am committed to my family and friends. Gardening allows me to be creative in my own home and reading allows me to travel in my mind. The sound of a tennis ball moving from my racquet makes me focused and relaxed. My mantra is to say yes to opportunities and be solution focused, where possible. Music and theatre add another dimension and when ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ airs – it takes over my life!

Biography

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment. I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth. Thousand unknown plants are noticed by me. When I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless.
