How can I help you today?





I can organize workshops on how to use poetry in your classroom regardless of the subject you teach. I can come and meet your kids and show them how poetry is even better than

their smartphones.



Currently conceptualising an exciting TIE project for 2018-19. Drama workshops focused on values are also in development. I have experience in  community theatre and theatre-in-education. I can provide drama workshops on any subject.

Lost at work? Your map is not the territory.


Let me help you find your way through using the GROW method of personal and workplace coaching.

I  can organize  workshops on what to include in a CLIL module and what  sequence to follow in order to create a successful bilingual  learning experience.

My Mission

My Philosophy

To foster the arts in education.

To promote unbounded imagination as well as critical thinking.

To create safe learning spaces for everyone.

To promote real inclusion (not just extended privilege) .

To get kids to think 'Why not?'



Today's ceiling is tomorrow's floor.
