Your Tyne and Wear Education Officer

Jessica Lloyd

Jessica is a qualified primary school teacher and a former People and Wildlife Officer at Northumberland Wildlife Trust.

She says: “I find it so rewarding to see how much knowledge children absorb during a day out in a woodland, as well as how much they enjoy it! Growing up in Northumberland I was lucky enough to go on regular family walks to woodlands, where I would take part in treasure hunts, build dens, look for wildlife and make up stories. Many children now don’t get so many opportunities to explore woodlands, so I love showing school groups how much fun they can be!”
