I have worked within the early years sector all my professional life, as a teacher, EYFS adviser, Area SENCo, Childminder, Assessor and mentor for EYPS/EYTs and as a self employed consultant. I also enjoy being a mum to my three girls although this is by far my biggest challenge - putting what I teach and preach into practice! I believe that being a parent is one of the most difficult yet rewarding roles that one can do and working with children and young people comes a very close second. We all need support, advice acknowledgement and encouragement at times to help us on our journey.
I am fully committed to continuing my professional development and am a member of several networks which enable me to learn and further develop my practice. I strive to improve on my current best and make a difference to the practitioners, children and families that I am in contact with.
Inspiration and motivation for those who teach
How I Can
I plan and deliver a wide range of training and CPD sessions for schools, nurseries, pre-schools, childminders, children’s centres and parents/carers. I also tailor courses to suit the individual needs of settings.
There are many ways that I can support your setting from key note speeches, consultancy, modelling, training/INSET, self evaluation and review, support for leadership and management and parent sessions.
