What is your background?
I have been a teacher for the past 8 years in a local primary school and before that I was a Learning Mentor helping pupils access learning and with SEND needs or behavioural issues and even before that I ran a Theatre in Education business with my husband.
Why did you want to work for yourself?
After teaching to the constraints of a standard curriculum for long it was time to break out and do something I could be in control of. Whilst teaching I was able to create whole school theme days and learning for life days where I could be as innovative as I liked. I think I was bitten by the bug of no constraints
What do you like to do with your spare time?
I really enjoy a nice long walk, a good book, time with my family and fitness.
Tell us something you’re passionate about?
I am passionate about working with children and helping then reach their full potential in anything they want to achieve.
What activities are you running
I'm running a whole range of creative classes for preschool and school-aged children and online kids parties. This includes weekend clubs as well as activities during the week. I'm gearing up for face to face classes and events and can't wait to provide creative fun to the whole community
