Hi, I'm Amanda

I'm a trained educator and I have taught in schools in the UK and in Denmark.  I have experience of  the English National Curriculum, Cambridge Curriculum, the International Baccalaureate and I hold a specialism in Early Years. 

I also have experience as a home educator.

I have always enjoyed reading to my own children and to my students in class and I am passionate about providing learning resources which inspire, open our minds to the world and encourage us to find out more. Resources which are fun and inviting, but also literacy-rich provide boundless opportunities for creative reflection and action.


Through Salamander, I hope to inspire you too! Whether you are a school looking to expand your English Language resources, a library seeking new and relevant titles, a teacher seeking inspiration, or a parent looking to inject some fun activities into daily life, I think we can help!  

We work with reputable UK Publishers who produce materials of the highest quality which are fun, playful and packed full of wonder.  Many of the books we recommend are award-winners and some are internet-linked to support further curiosity and learning.

We also create literacy inspired workshops to support student learning and art workshops with the team at Culture Shift. Find out more about Culture Shift here.

Get in touch and we can talk about how we can help you.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
