“I believe that SMILE’s mission is to be able to help support children and young people in their education as well as supporting them in a wider sense, as this too links to their education”
The Reasons Why Karen Cruise Chose Alexandra to Be a SMILE Board Member...
I loved the fact that Alexandra had chosen to become a teacher. I’ve witnessed her work hard through university and achieve a first class Masters degree. She teaches at inner city primary schools and I know she’s seen and supported many children who struggle in poverty. Alexandra knows first hand the impact this has on their learning and general life chances. Having someone on the team who can directly relate to our goals and values is priceless. She is also the originator of our SMILE acronym which perfectly encapsulates all that we aim to do.
