The academic is vital, but it is not enough.

 

For kids to harness the full potential of their intellect, they need opportunities to consider their values, communicate clearly, and reflect upon themselves and their relationships with others.

My projects develop children's self-expression and self-understanding.

These include Poetry Retreats, Poetry Residencies, and the Iliad Project.

I want the projects to be transformative, thought-provoking and unapologetically enjoyable. 

 I've been obsessed with mythology since childhood, and have relished the chance to get deeply invested in the beautiful weirdness once again. 

The Iliad Project is the main thing I'm doing in schools in 2022-23.

When creativity, knowledge and self-confidence interweave, children and their teachers can achieve remarkable things together.
