I arrived in North Devon in 1998 after having my eldest child and looking for a good place for her to grow up. I then had three other children and became completely involved in their education, home educating one child through secondary school and the younger two at primary level, always wanting them to be interested in everything and in common with other staff at the school have always had a let’s learn together approach. There is always something new to know and new ways to find out about it; learning never stops. I studied at Reigate School of Art and have an HND in Art and Design. I continued to create and exhibit while bringing up my children and am now volunteering at The Small School, where I am also Chair of Trustees, as I feel passionate about the School’s approach to human scale education.
