Thanks for visiting! I’m Rebecca, and I’m an Early Childhood Educator, Storyteller and English Language Teacher. I love writing stories, creating resources and organising events to enable children and families to tell their stories too.
The theme of migration forms part of my own story. As a child, my family migrated to South Africa. This meant a new school, new friends and new experiences. It also meant difficult transitions and goodbyes. As an adult I moved to Poland to teach English for 2 years. Over the last 5 years I have worked with and met many people who have experienced migration from countries including Bulgaria, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Ukraine and more.
I have always loved stories. As a young child I was called a ‘bookworm’ and usually found reading somewhere. I loved studying English Literature at school, college and then at the University of St Andrews, discussing stories with classmates and tutors. I also loved researching story sharing practices during my Masters in Early Childhood Education. Since then, one of my favourite things is to sit with friends with a cup of tea or coffee, or a meal, and listen to stories of different people and cultures. Find out more about me here.
