Mandy Leinster

My name is Mandy Leinster and I have been a teacher at Carden Primary School since September 2005, always working in the KS2 Speech and Language Centre. I have been a teacher for over 30 years, qualifying in 1991 in Brighton. My teaching career started at a school in Eastbourne.

I travelled to school each day from Brighton in my first car, which was a Morris Minor, that was older than me! I have taught from Year 3 to Year 6. My passion for SEN led to a particular interest in Speech and Language and I studied to achieve a Master’s Degree in Speech and Language Difficulties. I’ve lived in Brighton all my adult life. I love going to the Amex with my two sons, to watch the football and have followed the journey of Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club, from the Goldstone Ground to the premier league!
