I qualified as a Montessori practitioner in 1988 and went on to open my first school, in Barnes, in 1989, having been driven by a love of children and a passion for early years education. I have been teaching now for almost 25 years and still wake up every morning looking forward to going to school!
My love of education has also extended to my own personal development and I have trained to become a Chartered Baby Massage Instructor and Holistic Therapist, as well as completing training in Sign Language for Babies and Children and am an Early Language Lead Practitioner in the ECaT programme.
During my time as a teacher I have also taken time to study for a City and Guilds in Creative Design and Soft Furnishings at Guildhall University.
I have two children, a son and a daughter, both now grown and enjoying very successful careers of their own. I am proud to say that teaching is my life and I wouldn’t do anything else!
