Nicki Jempson

Nicki has been a primary school teacher for 24 years.  She works at RFS Battram and Alvecote Woods in Tamworth.

She says: “Working in the outdoors with children is incredibly rewarding – for them, as well as for teachers.  It often brings children who might otherwise be reticent in a classroom setting, out of themselves. I hope every child who takes part will go home with memories to share and to treasure for years to come!”

Nicki has a degree in ecology and has previously worked as a volunteer for both the Leicester Ecology Trust and the Leicestershire Museums and Record Service.
