My name is Danielle and I am passionate about creativity and innovation.
My current main job, other than as mum to 2 gorgeous kids, is teaching Specialist Music to children from 5-13. Throughout my 15 year career, though, I have taught all ages. It hasn’t been an easy ride – teaching is not one of those careers – but I have definitely had many highlights.
This blog first started in 2017 from a I need I had felt for a long time to write and share with other people. I wanted to rediscover my “spark” for music. I wanted to discuss teaching and how we can survive this vocation. I wanted to improve my life and be a happier and calmer “me”.
What I didn’t expect from my blogging was that I would find the true crux of my lost “spark” – and that was this feeling that MY creative spirit was being smothered and held back. And it made me sad. And it made me angry. And it made me stand up and say “enough”.
I am making changes. I am afraid but I am not letting fear stop me this time.
I really look forward sharing this journey with you. To sharing my insights into creativity and innovation.
I hope that my passion for life, Music, teaching and creating a “better way”, will inspire you to look deep inside and find what ‘defines’ you and gives you the courage to take a leap of faith – even if just in a small way.
