In a varied and interesting career, I have lectured in environmental studies; worked as a museum curator; been a pond warden; wild life watch leader; worked in non-maintained nurseries; been a supply teacher and have run my own small business. I returned to teaching six years ago and have taught in Foundation stage two at Whitchurch infant and nursery school since 2008. I trained as a forest leader in 2010 and have developed outdoor learning in the school since then and more recently have become subject lead for science. In addition to FS1, 2 and KS 1 sessions, I have led forest school sessions for children’s centre families, parents and during summer school. We currently have over 120 children per week accessing our forest school provision throughout the year.
