This is a question that I ask myself a lot!
At a simple level, I am:
- Mum and Wife; daughter; sister; the best Aunty in the world.
- Teacher (26 years)
- Business owner (Photography, 12 years; Coaching 18 months; Tutoring 6 months)
Obviously, I’m a bit more than that.
I’m not someone who is going to be remembered for keeping their mouth shut about important things.
I’m a paradoxical introvert – in that I can be extremely extrovert in the right company, but I do really love being by myself.
I’ve spent the last few years fighting to reconnect to the person that became buried in the day to day grind of a job that almost killed me.
I’m building a community to support teachers and other educational professionals, current or who have left, to recover from the damage that they have experienced to their sense of self and potential as a result of working in toxic environments or under toxic leaders.
