Fiona was a primary school teacher for 18 years and also worked as a Learning Support Assistant at Buxton and Leek College. She has run a wide variety of after school-clubs and activities relating to her interests, from STEM and Code Clubs to gymnastics and skating and is a great believer in presenting children with wide-ranging opportunities beyond the usual curriculum to help equip them with skills and interests for their future lives.
Now retired, Fiona and her husband have acquired a small wood just to the north-west of Lowberdale. They are keen to use this as a backdrop to scientific investigations, art, literacy or practical woodland skills. It also provides a calm space to reconnect with the natural world.
