Ellis Cross

Learning Support Assistant

What I love about my job:

Knowing that every day, two of my favourite things will happen. Firstly, I’ll laugh and secondly, I’ll learn something new – whether that be about one of the children, myself, or dinosaurs.

Who or what inspires me:

People’s ability to show such resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity, as captured in Jodi Picoult’s quote ‘The human capacity for burden is like bamboo - far more flexible than you'd ever believe at first glance’.

Little known fact about me:

Twice in the past few years I have cut off about 30cm of hair to donate to charity. My hair seems to grow pretty quickly and I think I’m well on my way to my third donation!
