Rachel Orr

Rachel is a shoe queen and opera diva. (Lost count of how many pairs of shoes and boots I have but it’s near 150!) She lives in the North East of England in the town home to Durham’s International Cricket Ground. Rachel has a very eclectic taste in music across not only the decades but also the centuries. Rachel began singing from a very young age and is an established classical performer in the North East singing at The Sage Gateshead and Newcastle City Hall. Having spent 30 years as a teacher leading two schools as headteacher, Rachel now works for an education charity supporting teachers aspiring to leadership and also headship.

Rachel’s hobbies include singing, reading, gardening, cooking (with wine), cricket, listening to the radio and buying the odd pair of shoes or two.
