LEAF Regional Consultants can provide suggestions for places to visit, especially farms, and can put teachers in touch with farmers who will go into school. Consultants also offers teacher training and student teacher training about how to use food, farming and the countryside in classroom teaching.
Bethan Simons is our Consultant in Wales. Bethan was raised on a Pembrokeshire dairy farm, learning to love the countryside around her as she grew. After qualifying as a Secondary English teacher, she spent some years in the classroom before realising that what she really wanted to do was a role that combined her love of the environment and agriculture with her passion for quality education.
In her spare time, she enjoys competing with her horses and corresponding for equestrian publications.
To contact Bethan, email [email protected] . Bethan is looking forward to working with farmers and teachers throughout Wales.
If you have ideas you want to discuss or just need to find out how LEAF Education can help in Wales, please get in touch with Bethan. She'll be pleased to help.
