Sarah Seaman, BSc/PGCE/MA.

Sarah, better known in her industry as ”The Muddy Puddle Teacher,” is an inspirational, educational author, teacher and consultant who created a teaching approach that helps neurodivergent children flourish academically.

Over 23,000 teachers are trained on her unique teaching approach in the UK, with over 500+ whole school state, nursery and SEND-trained schools. One of her special needs schools is a hub of excellence declared by the Scottish Government. They all happily teach academic lessons outside, from embedding multiplication on giant chalkboards to practising punctuation through racing and tag games. (view here). 

Sarah, who also has dyslexia and ADHD, also speaks about her incredible personal journey, learning how she best learns, from a lower-ability child to an adult with two degrees, a master’s, a published book and a thriving business.
