Sally is a passionate and committed Waste Education Officer working in Devon, where she delivers workshops and assemblies about recycling and composting. After 12 years teaching, mostly in primary schools, she has spent the past two years tackling the many challenges that secondary schools face, working closely with senior management and students to achieve reductions in cost and waste to landfill. This has sparked an interest in the operational side of waste management, but her enthusiasm will always be for inspiring young people to make sustainable changes and to care for their environment. She enjoys teaching, sharing information and has excellent communications skills. This has made for strong links with district and county officers and many schools. Her methodical, no-nonsense approach gets results!
Sally is experienced in primary and secondary teaching and has worked with community groups and families. Prior to working for Resource Futures she delivered the waste education project in Devon for Global Action Plan, accumulating 10 years of local school knowledge and contacts. She is capable and confident in the classroom and has experience of facilitating large events and teacher training.
Sally became interested in environmental issues whilst living and working in the Australian rainforest. She lives a low-impact lifestyle and being a keen gardener, grows her own food. She has run gardening groups in schools and created and facilitated a woodland environmental arts/play project with schools and families. She is a ‘people person’ and loves festivals – developing and running creative workshops at events for over 12years. She is happy in a wide range of situations and her confidence and infectious enthusiasm are obvious in her work - and play!
