I’m Sara. Currently settled in Oxford, UK, which has now been my home for over 15 years. I’m a Psychology graduate, Early Years Teacher and Primary Teacher.

A ‘calming presence’

I was once told that I have a calming presence, which really touched me. At the time it was the nicest thing I had heard someone say about me and it’s something which has stuck with me. Since then, I’ve had people mention how calming I am to have around, which I would never have thought of as a trait I had. Now it’s become something which is part of my identity and therefore embedded into me.

I have strong feelings on a huge number of social issues, which I may talk about in some posts. I am also very protective of children and would adopt all the vulnerable children in the world if I could! I am a dreamer and want to explore the world, help others, learn more and gain a range of experiences.

This blog is a personal collection of my thoughts and experiences. You’ll find posts about teaching, mental health, photography and other anything else I feel like sharing! If anyone is reading this, thank you, I hope you find something on this blog you can relate to. Please get in touch and share your story with me, I would love to hear from you!
