About Me



I'm Helen and I am the founder of Spark Sensory. I have spent over 15 years as a dedicated, ambitious and successful primary school teacher. Prior to developing Spark Sensory full time, I was the Special Educational Needs Coordinator and Assistant Head at a large inner city primary school. Throughout my career I have taken on many leadership roles including Head of School. I love teaching, love working with children and have a real passion and expertise in early child development. I am also a mummy to two energetic, fun little boys; Charlie and Tommy.
