Fiona Edwards

Education Co-ordinator

Fiona has worked as a school teacher and an editor in educational publishing with a curriculum focus on reading and drama.

In recent years she has worked for Opening the Book as a trainer delivering both face-to-face workshops and online support and feedback. For Fiona, the best bit about being a BookSpace mentor is the chance she gets to engage with teachers and assistants to discuss creative ways to inspire children to read for pleasure. Out of work, Fiona likes to read and talk about books, as well as singing and walking – sometimes at the same time.

What is your favourite BookSpace
product and why?

I love the reading hideaway. It looks really tempting when dressed with joke books and poetry and they attract lots of interest from young readers, especially boys.
