I am really good at being creative.  

What do you like to do when you aren’t at school?

When I am not at school, I like baking, playing with my boys and reading.  

What is something not everyone knows about you?

If you knew me really well, you would know that as a little girl I grew up a few streets from Mildenhall.  

What are some of your most favourite things?

San Remo has been a fave since I was little. I had a lot of goldfish as pets.  I played the flute. My love of Montessori began when I visited my sister where she was teaching (a long time ago) and my oldest nephew was in casa. I observed in his class and he was obsessed with maps and it was amazing to see such small children engaged and loving the materials.
