Credentials - Available for a half day visit to your school, in your town. Offering school and group poetry workshops, I am an experienced primary teacher with BA English (hons) degree from the  University of London and  PGCE from Brunel University. I  worked  for 18 years in the Slough and Windsor Maidenhead schools from Foundation through to KS3. Whilst teaching, I wrote my poetry, started a writing project and  have run  'New Beginnings' poetry workshops in a  secondary school and  KS1 and KS2 poetry workshop classes in primary schools.  I have also delivered  empowering poetry workshops, working with children in Cape Town  South  Africa,  for the Amy Biehl  Foundation www.amybiehl.co.za  through the charity  www.uthandosa.org. At the opening of the Isiseko Educare Centre in Mfuleni Cape Town, I had the privilege of  reading  one of my poems.

 I have worked  and completed poetry workshops with schools  in Slough Libraries. There have also been some really fun drama, art filled  poetry workshops at Slough and Cippenham Library too. A while back I delivered a complimentary poetry workshop on empowerment for women from the charity www.meet&mingle.co.uk.   KS3 'Transition' poetry  workshops was facillitated in Parmiters School, Nr Watford and  KS3 Identity workshop at  Forest Gate Community School, London E7. 

In and around London  I completed a number of workshops  including  a brillliant one in Hemel Hempstead.  A number of returns to South Africa and Hout Bay, saw me working and volunteering poetry workshops with Ikhaya Le Themba ' Home Of Hope' a non profit charity organisation www.ikhayalethemba.org.za/volunteers.

I have also I facilitated a wonderful session of workshops at Woodhill Primary School, Woodhill, Greenwich, London. A lovely primary school, in Anguilla BWI, permitted me to share and discuss my poetry in an impromtu read aloud session.

I can come and deliver my cross curricular poetry workshops and using drama and role play, give your pupils (primary and senior) the freedom of  writing poetry. Everyone of all abilities, including pupil premium groups can participate, from those requiring support to the most able. They can 'break all the rules of writing and grammar', because it's all about choices and how they want to use words and  shape 'their poems'.
