My name is Stacey Howard and I have been involved in education since 1997. I started my journey as an Advanced Teaching Assistant, working my way through a number of roles including being a School Games Organiser for over 45 schools.
Five years ago I decided to peruse my passion for being in the outdoors which is where Outdoor Ted was born.
Not only can being in nature help with mental health & wellbeing but it is a great tool for education.
My greatest achievement came in 2014 when David Beckham, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Darren Campbell declared live on Sky Sports that I was Teacher of the Year. A day I will never forget.
Since then I like to think of new projects and my latest one, Passport 2 Success was voted to be in the Top 3 projects as part of Sports Englands Impact awards for 2022.
