I graduated with a degree in Spanish Studies in 1984 and worked for many years in the travel industry in London. After that I became a secretary in the Joan Bicknell Centre for People with Learning Disabilities, an oil company and then worked in investment banking in the City of London. I retrained as a teacher in 2007 and gained my QTS with PGCE in secondary teaching. I taught at Mascalls School in Tonbridge for 5 years before coming to FLESS. I work 2 days a week on eLearning and the rest of my time is spent in and around the T&LC in Battle where I teach small groups and 1:1.
