Education

Over the last 7 years I have embarked on a journey of sharing my pedagogy with others. I love...

  • the process of putting into words the values I have embedded in my practice 

  • supporting others to be courageous and have confidence in their abilities

  • taking any subject and finding its innate creative potential

Featured Project

I deliver 3 different types of CPDs which include:

  1. Primary Curriculum: Exploring theatre and creative arts techniques to enhance children’s engagement and learning in the following subjects; science, maths, history, literacy and numeracy 

  2. Early Years: Exploring sensory play and creative approaches that enhance physical, emotional, mental development for 2-5 year olds 

  3. Behaviour Management: Supporting teachers and practitioners to find creative and effective approaches to managing classroom behaviour as well as how to  support children with behavioural needs.
