I came to teaching later in life, having spent years running my own practice as a Medical Herbalist and managing my business, supplying herbal tea blends and natural skincare products to restaurants and stockists throughout the country. I left holistic medicine, and turned to holistic education, which I believe is my true calling.
By modelling healthy and constructive practices I can help children develop positive habits, and I have this marvellous fantasy, whereby all teachers, everywhere, are approaching their work from the same perspective. We can make so much difference to the world, just by developing empathy, compassion and kindness in future generations.
What makes me so happy is to realise that there are hundreds, maybe thousands, of teachers out there with a similar mindset. Written here are my musings on teaching and my own experiences, and I invite you to follow me on this fabulous journey!
