Oak is taught by Jackie Barnett on a Monday and Kim Williamson on Tuesday-Friday.
Hello, my name is Mrs Williamson. I was born in Manchester, where I worked in music retail before I went to Nottingham for my teacher training. I am married with one son. Over ten years ago, I moved to St. Albans when my husband got a job in London and we are so glad we did - we feel really lucky to live in such a beautiful place.
I am inspired by people who want to make a difference to the world by working with endangered species. I particularly admire Dame Jane Goodall, whose work changed the way we understand animals, as well as Dr. Erik Patel who is working to save critically endangered silky sifakas in Madagascar. Their perseverance, empathy and tenacity are inspiring.
I think kindness is to give warmth and value to any living thing with no expectation of anything in return.
I am very proud that I raised money for cancer research after the early death of my mother. Despite not being a natural runner, I trained hard every evening and managed to run the course - to the surprise of everyone who knows me!
