My name is Rachel Yorke and as you may of noticed I enjoy and Love to write poetry. I'm always on the look out for new inspiration and love reading poetry and sharing my passion with others.
I love writing poetry for children and it is a real passion of mine to get as many children as I can to pick up a book and enjoy reading.
I have a very loving and supportive husband and I am a mother of two beautiful boys. My family are important to me and I always ensure we have good quality family time and lots of fun together. I am a Teaching Assistant at a Junior school, I absolutely love my job and all the children I work with. In my spare time I am the Leader of 22nd Fillongley Guides and really enjoy going out and about on fun adventures with the girls and generally being outdoors (ummm when it's not raining haha).
I also have a huge love for music and singing, I am a very proud member of four choirs in which we sing together to help raise valuable funds for various charities of all different natures but all very important.
I love to laugh!!!
ya know those proper belly laughs where you have to cross your legs and your voice goes all squeaky haha
I have always had a passion for poetry but general life seemed to get in the way, as a former soldier and qualified care assistant I found that long hours and a busy career really dampened my creative spirit. It was only when I began my career as a Teaching Assistant in a Junior school that I rekindled my creative flare.
And so my writing has begun
