Hello and welcome!
My name is Bianca. I am a qualified teacher, though currently a stay-at-home-mum. I taught in a wonderful Primary School for eight years, during which I had the role of Numeracy co-ordinator for a stretch of time.
As a stay-at-home mum looking to return to work on my own terms, I started Flying Sprout with hope of earning an income doing the things I love; teaching and creating educational content.
My favourite part of teaching has always been the one-on-one and small group situations when I could witness the light bulb switching on and the real learning taking place.
I believe that for learning to take place, children need to feel confident in themselves. Giving opportunities for them to experience success and build self-belief before moving on to challenging learning tasks sets them up for greater success.
The name Flying Sprout was inspired by a great quote that is relevant for parents and teachers alike; There are two things we should give our children: one is roots and the other is wings. We can take this to mean many things but ultimately, as parents and educators, it reminds us of the responsibility we have to provide our students with a strong base and opportunities to soar to the fullest of their potential.
