Hello there. I am Vanessa Toynbee and am lucky enough to be the Early Years Facilitator at Benenden Primary School. I have been teaching Key Stage One children in many of the local schools throughout my teaching career and have enjoyed watching them grow in character and personality, now that they bring their own children in to visit! I trained at Bishop Otter College in Chichester and gained my Bachelor of Education (Honours) degree, following that up with a PGCE in Dyslexia from the Dyslexia Institute. I have an interest in complementary therapies, including Reflexology, Mindfulness, Reiki (Level 3) and am just completing my yoga teacher training with Yoga London. I enjoy yoga in my spare time and when not working, enjoy taking my two naughty Jack Russell terriers, Arnold and Junior for long country walks.
