From a very young age I have dedicated my life to helping others in the local community by working in schools and coaching young people. My aim in life is to help individuals through life-long learning and a making a difference in the world. In my experience I have always had a passion for contributing positively to society.
My work in education began over 25 years, by becoming a teacher and having a positive influence on the younger generation. I have been fortunate enough to experience working in New Zealand and in the United Kingdom. My role has evolved from working in mainstream inner city schools to rural settings, whilst diversifying into special needs education. Working one to one with children and providing opportunities to grow has been thoroughly rewarding.
From my experience in teaching the most important area, I feel has been life skills and focussing on self-improvement. Reaching the full potential and breaking down barriers has been vital in many of my lessons. My intention is to bring this to the forefront of this company and aspire to improve themselves.
Witnessing children and young people learning with a smile on their face has been the most fulfilling and successful part of my life. My belief is that memorable real-life experiences create life long memories and help individuals to learn.
My strengths lie in communication, being able to develop strong relationships on a personal level with the young people and families and truly having an empathy for others. I firmly believe that working together and forming a strong bond or trust is vital in creating a caring and supportive environment.
One size does not always fit all and in creating this company we will help our families to identify the best way we can support every young person. We are here to help.
