Hi, I’m Shiva,
People smiling after achieving a result they think is impossible; simple ideas made into something wonderful, are my greatest motivators. Creative Mojo gives me the opportunity to do this every day.
Before Creative Mojo I had over seven years of teaching experience, predominantly in special needs settings, where I enjoyed sharing my love of science, art and crafts, and exploration. I believe that interactive choices and empowering others to be confident are crucial to learning. I have experience working with children with difficult behaviours, ASD, and learning difficulties, and have also cared for two family members who had vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s.
My training background includes courses in de-escalation techniques, safeguarding, health and safety, dyslexia, dyscalculia, and supporting inclusion.
I appreciate the many outdoor activities living in Devon provides, including hiking and swimming in the sea. I think it’s important to take advantage of this beautiful area of the UK and I enjoy doing this with my dog Pip. Art and craft are also a great outlet for me. For many years wood carving and painting have been a passion of mine, but I now spend most of my spare time creating smiles with my needle felted creatures; running workshops and attending local craft fairs.Visit my page
