I was born and raised in England. I studied at Glasgow University before moving back to my hometown Manchester, where I trained as a teacher. As far as teaching goes, my passions are History and creative writing, alongside outdoor learning. I love music – I’ve sung with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra Chorus and the Halle Choir, but most importantly, I sang at my sister’s wedding! As well as music, I love the great outdoors and adventuring! Moving to New Zealand is an adventure and a half and I can’t wait to join the Crofton Downs community.
