School and community workshops were a big influence on me when I was growing up, and I love working on new, innovative programmes with these groups. Over the past few years, I have engaged with both primary and secondary schools in the UK and abroad, delivering a broad range of activities around performing arts, culture and communication. I also work with students to create original productions from concept to performance.
Some past sessions were through an arts secondment with the London Jewish Cultural Centre and the Hampstead and Highgate Literary Festival.
My classes of 7th and 8th grade boys thoroughly enjoyed the creative writing workshop with Rachel Creeger.
She was inspirational and kept all the boys on task for an hour. I look forward to booking her again next time she is in Israel for more classes.

Rachel was an exciting and innovative writer in residence who inspired a group of students to put together an original play. She helped the students to mine their own creativity in a fun, dynamic environment with a flexible and open attitude.
It was a breath of fresh air into the department and a really worthwhile project.

Rachel delivered some very engaging workshops for our trainee teachers on engaging challenging students in schools. Her combination of experience, helpful, usable strategies and just sheer positivity resulted in great feedback. They came away from the workshop with some useful and doable ideas.
