I qualified as a teacher back in 2005 and specialised in teaching in the Early Years for the next eight years. Throughout this period, I developed a real passion for understanding and promoting early language development and also for nurturing creativity in young children. I then went on to train and qualify as a school Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCo), which presented a further opportunity for me to learn more about the world of early language and communication skills.
After 14 rewarding years teaching in primary schools from Yorkshire, to Cambridgeshire and finally, East Northamptonshire, the opportunity to follow a new and exciting path came along and I took over the reins of Music Makers Northants in July 2019. I have two young children of my own, both of which came along to and loved Music Makers sessions, and I know just how important music, movement and the shared enjoyment of these have been to me and my family.
It is now my mission to continue to bring Music Makers fun to other families with young children and to share our love of music, singing, dancing and meeting new friends!
