Ben Mali Macfadyen

This is my third year in Totnes and I am thrilled to return to teaching EYFS, welcoming in the newest members to our St. John’s community. 


My commitment to Walnut class is to provide the nurture, opportunities, support and positive challenges that will enable each child to thrive and succeed. My background in the expressive arts has given me the tools to create imaginative, rich learning opportunities for children in our class, and i’m enjoying learning from them too! I’m very lucky to work alongside such an experienced team here, and making use of the amazing outdoor grounds on offer.  


Outside of school i’m an avid reader and I love to swim and cycle. I’m also a huge nature fan, and am currently enjoying being out of the city so I can learn more about the plants of Devon. ‘Mali’ actually means ‘gardener’ so it feels appropriate!
