my name is Amanda, I am a cookery teacher, (I love food!) and specialise in teaching children with learning and behavioural difficulties. I am also currently part way through my PGCE qualification. That is just one of my jobs as I also run a children’s cookery company - setting it up twelve years ago when I took a career break from a different career to have three children - all boys now aged 14, 16 and 19 years.
The reason for joining fit farm is to do something for myself (and also spend some time with my mum who is coming to fit farm with me for the week). Although family life is still very busy, I love my second career but I am also conscious that I need to take time out for myself - not only for this 1 week but also going forward with my life. Before children - I really don’t know where the last 20 years have gone - I was always physically active and was a member of a gym attending on a regular basis, hill walking, skiing etc I know I am not as fit or healthy as I would like to be and really need that kick start, away from all distractions.
Looking forward to meeting all the fit farm staff and fellow fit farm students.
