Donna Burfield: A Quarter-Century of Nurturing Minds and Hearts

Boasting an expansive 26-year career in the educational sector, Donna Burfield is more than an educator; she is an advocate for lifelong learning and individual growth. Her foray into the field began with a seven-year tenure as a professional nanny, where she provided not just care but also foundational education to youngsters.

Her expertise led her to the Montessori Kindergarten environment, specializing in the Foundation 1 and 2 levels. Donna excelled in crafting educational experiences that are as enriching as they are personalized.

Her passion for education didn't stop there. For eight years, Donna has served as a Learning Support Assistant in a Secondary school setting. In this role, she has been instrumental in providing targeted educational support and ensuring a conducive learning environment for students of varying needs.

In the realm of personal experience, Donna is a mother to three remarkable children: a daughter and twin sons. As a single parent for over a decade, Donna's hands-on experiences have equipped her with invaluable life skills, imbuing her professional roles with genuine empathy and understanding.

Whether you are a parent seeking guidance, or an educational institution aiming for excellence, Donna Burfield stands as a pillar of expertise and compassion in the educational and parenting landscape.

Parents Standing Tall Workshop: Everyone has their own personal reasons to attend a specific workshop. For me, when I decided to register for Donna’s workshop “Strategies to empower your children”, I didn’t do it because I was facing a specific problem with my children, I did it because 1. A LOT of people had told me that Donna’s workshops were brilliant 2. I am working with children and parents myself as a professional (NOT as a coach). I thought it would be interesting to see HER approach to empowering children and being more united as a family. Of course, Donna is a very experienced coach, and I appreciate her style and expertise. During the workshop, there was this specific part about how we take care of ourselves as a family, with many different ideas, challenges, and resources that actually turned out to be a very new angle for me. Moments of happiness with our family are always priceless, and for this, I am very happy with the takeaways of the workshop. A few weeks after the workshop we did continue the discussion with Donna around coaching and parenting, and I really appreciate her being not only knowledgeable but also reliable, organized and efficient at what she does.
