The Basics

I am passionate about poetry and the Scots language. With my drive and enthusiasm, I want to foster a love of Scots and poetry. What I do is about much more than Burns and I have something to engage all pupils, not just the top sets. I am flexible, collaborative and keen to work in partnership with you.  My sessions are tailored to meet the needs of pupils and teachers.
