About me

5. Jul, 2013

 

My name is Rachel Yorke and as you may of noticed I enjoy and Love to write poetry but my passion is writing poetry for children. I'm always on the look out for new inspiration and love reading poetry and sharing my passion with others.

 

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 love for music and singing, I am a very proud member of The Mary Ann Evans Hospice Choir, we sing together to help raise valuable funds for the local Hospice, which is not only close to my home but close to heart to.

 

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 Heart
