Liz has taught in a range educational settings including special schools, pupil referral units and higher education. She has also worked with a team devising and delivering programmes on social and health issues to primary and secondary students using the medium of drama and role play.
Her background is in Drama and Theatre Studies; before training as a primary teacher she was an educational puppeteer in the North West, delivering puppetry performances and workshops and supporting teachers wishing to use puppetry as a highly motivating tool to support many aspect of the curriculum.
She is currently a tutor for Looked After Children, working with students in the care system who need some additional individual support to help them achieve their full potential in secondary school and she has also worked in a UK closed centre, teaching English to adults from other countries. This entailed supporting them through difficult and stressful situations. It was very rewarding work and provided an opportunity to learn about many different cultures and languages.
She loves theatre, music and the visual arts. She is particularly excited about joining the Quest for Learning with Wild programme as she has always had a love of nature and the outdoors and is keen to pass this on to her learners.
