Victoria Pallot has been teaching for 17 years - she has a degree in Sociology, a degree in Education, a diploma in Child Anger Management and is a qualified headteacher. She is also a Forest School leader and enjoys inspiring children through outdoor learning.
Victoria specialises in behaviour management, wellbeing and change management. Life can be tough, the world can be unkind and at times it may feel like nobody understands what you are going through. But, it doesn't have to be that way. Victoria believes that with the right guidance and support we all have the capacity to make positive changes in our life.
Victoria is Jersey-born and bred and lives there with her three children and husband. She was inspired to write her book (The Pocket-Sized Not-so-Fluffy Guide to Life - for Teens) after spending hours reading psychology books and her own interactions with hundreds of children in schools. She wanted to write something that she wished she could have read as a teenager - something to help navigate through the tough times. She set herself a target and got up at 5am, 5 days a week, for six months so that she could write for 2 hours before getting her children up and ready for school. Her daughter, Winnie, edited the book and hopes to be an author one day too.
When Victoria is not busy teaching, researching and writing, she enjoys spending time with her family - cycling, watching films and enjoying pub lunches.
