About Polly Walker

Polly's background is in children's education. Originally training as a primary school teacher she made a transition to specialising in Special Educational Needs - specifically teaching children and young people that were permanently excluded from mainstream school. Most recently Polly led a team of Primary Behaviour Support Specialists whilst also training to become an accredited mediator, working to resolve conflict within the workplace, community and educational settings. It was through Polly's experiences of working with children and young people exhibiting complex emotional and behavioural difficulties that she developed a strong desire to produce a piece of fun, age appropriate literature focusing on self esteem. When Polly took a break from her career in education to parent her two young children, she seized the opportunity and put pen to paper to produce "Worm, Slug, Maggot and Leech and their Troublesome Transformation''. She is hopeful that her first story may be used as an aid to promote discussion with children about feelings of self worth, self esteem, diversity and possibly as a school resource to support both guided reading and the teaching of PSHE / SMSC. Polly continues to work as an SEN Mediator and makes author visits into schools to carry out readings, workshops and discussions. She also blogs about adventures in the life of a children's author and from time to time she also blogs for the Huffington Post.
