SNAPS is delighted to introduce Tracy Stephenson to our families. Tracy will be covering Lucy’s role while she takes maternity leave.
Tracy has over 25 years experience supporting young children with SEND and working in partnership with their families.
Having trained as a teacher in Manchester, she has taught in both mainstream and specialist provision. When the decision was made to move to Yorkshire she took up an Assistant Head Teacher position before taking her leave from teaching and becoming a SEND advisor.
Working for the National Portage Association, Tracy managed a team of Portage Home Visitors. When the opportunity arose, the change to project manager was a natural one. Tracy has held the post as Project Manager and Accredited Trainer for the National Portage Association for the last 4 years and has worked on a range of projects funded by the DofE and helps to develop Portage practice across the country.
Tracy has two grown up daughters who are both living away at University. In her spare time, she enjoys keeping fit, camping & hiking and is also a bit of a history geek. She is delighted to be joining SNAPS which she will be managing alongside her work with the National Portage Association.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to work with SNAPS and I am so looking forward to getting to know our families and being of assistance in any way I can”.
Tracy is currently working alongside Lucy and will be taking care of the role as of August.
