Born and raised on the North Norfolk coast of Great Britain, I am the only daughter, with three brothers an academic mother ,and a fisherman father from generations of fishing and lifeboat crew. Completing my teaching degree at the Froebel Institute I soon moved into the education sphere of children with diverse learning styles and often challenging behaviours. Raising my five children I discovered Steiner education and have since examined all teaching and learning through the lenses Steiner gave . With an Australian husband I have settled in Queensland and continued the pursuit of ?seeing what is?. Researching how children learn and how children with challenges and diversity can access the same learning offered to all children. Studying for a doctorate has provided the focus and rigour.
