Hi! Here’s a little bit if info all about us!
Every Day’s a school day is run by Vix and Em. We are teachers who are passionate about helping parents to understand the crazy world of school.
Vix has been teaching for over 6 years. She has taught Foundation classes right up to year 5 bringing her energry and humour into the classroom. Vix and Em used to share a Foundation/ Year 1 class, this is where the madness and a great friendship began! Em’s favourite quote from Vix to a four year old; “You can learn a lot from a Taylor Swift song, shake it off!”
Em has been teaching for over 10 years mostly in Foundation, year 1 and year 2. She has also been a Headteacher for 6 years in both a small village Primary School and a large coastal Primary School. She loves working with children and families although it regularly drives her to reach for the Prosecco!
Away from the world of work we are Mum’s to four cheeky kiddies, two toddlers, one in Reception and one at pre-school! We love coffee, cake, having a good gossip with our friends, beach days and enjoying all that wonderful Devon has to offer!
In our experience as teachers and friends of Mums we know that school can feel really alienating to parents whether you’re just starting out on the journey or have had more than one child start school already. In our schools we have both run workshops, drop ins, parent meetings hoping to reach out to parents who feel baffled, but somehow we feel like we can do more. We want to break down the barriers between home and school, offering support and advice without the jargon or judgement.
