As a primary school teacher with over 30 years teaching experience, I have embraced many changes in trends and thinking, expectations and requirements in Education but one of the most powerful and transformative experiences for me has been an introduction to Forest School.

 Forest school sessions have served to reinforce my belief in how much children benefit from being immersed in the natural world, discovering and learning in this contextual environment through practical skills and problem solving, communication and self-awareness, investigations and discoveries, fresh air and freedom.

I love to spend time with my family, dog walking, being creative and I am very privileged to volunteer at Riding for the Disabled where I have met some incredibly inspiring people.
