My name is Sarah Fagan and I am super excited to be part of the Esteem Team. Over the last 20 years I have taught in a variety of different primary schools gaining a wealth of experience, I have also worked as a mental health lead teacher in a primary school enabling me to completely focus on the area that I love. I have seen first hand the stresses and strains that school can inadvertently place upon our children and I’m passionate about making education and positive mental health accessible for all. I believe strongly that relationship and connection is key and I have a strong nurturing ethos where I love to get to know each child as the unique individual that they are.  

My mantra is children, not robots. Unique, wonderful, strength filled, resilient, individual and loved...children.

My own family experience has given me an interest in neurodiversity and I know from personal experience, the impact that gaining the support your child needs can have on the whole family. I look forward to getting to know the families of the children that I work with as I know that their knowledge of their child is second to none. 

I live in a busy house with my two teenage boys and my husband. I love cats (as you can see from my photo!) and I have three of them called Mabel, Jimmy and Dave. I also have two crazy but adorable dogs called Agnes and Martha and a dalmation crested gecko called Monty who is beautiful. 

I LOVE to spend time doing anything creative particularly punch needle embroidery and painting, baking lots of treats, spending time in the countryside looking at wildlife, travelling and watching Marvel and Harry Potter movies with my family in front of the fire.
