“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 Bachelor's degree in Primary Teaching and a Master degree in Race and Education. In her role, 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. She is also the originator of our SMILE acronym, which perfectly encapsulates all that we aim to do.
