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.

My story…

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.
