Eleanor is a local author and trainer working with teachers and young people across the North East. She is also an advocate for Down’s Syndrome, working towards equality regardless of difference, disability or disadvantage.
Eleanor has led a pretty ordinary life, but that doesn’t mean it cannot lead to the extra-ordinary.
Eleanor started her career as a teacher in secondary schools pursuing her love of maths and inspiring others to do the same. Having spent over 10 years across two schools she witnessed the decline in student’s mental health and wellbeing, specifically around exam times. As a result of witnessing that and having been introduced to personal development she set about to make a change and accidentally wrote some books along the way!
She has seen first-hand how emerging children in personal development, at an early age, can have a positive impact on their confidence, no more so than her eldest daughter who, at 10 years old, has been running her own business for over 2 years.
Inspired by two people who made a significant mark on her life led her to set up ‘The Snowdrop Story’. She now sets out to empower children and young people enabling them to be successful in life.
Eleanor will be presenting her talk on ‘My Snowdrop Story’.
