Carmen was born in Australia and brought up in Malta, moving to the UK in 1985 and is an award-winning teacher and Early Years Specialist.

Her degree in Literature and History of Art inspired her to use books to support children’s personal, social and emotional development; communication and language. She has written a beautiful children’s book – Matthew and the Magic Goat.

Carmen was recently shortlisted for the Early Years Alliance’s Belle Tutaev Lifetime Achievement Award and she is a private Early Years tutor.
