School Mum

Samantha Jockel aka Sam Shazzam is a full-time blogger behind the Australian websites School Mum and The Holidaying Family. When Sam’s eldest daughter was just about to start school she decided to document her journey as a school mum via a blog in the hope of connecting with other mums starting out the same journey. She loves holidaying with her family of five, who often find themselves adventuring somewhere overseas.
