After having a long career in graphic design, resulting in running my own business, I decided after many years of supporting my own children in their primary schools, to undertake the challenge of becoming a qualified primary teacher. This I am now completing through the University of Bedfordshire. They say time passes by when you have fun, consequently I find myself in my fourth year at St Augustine’s, working alongside some brilliant teachers and professionals, covering classes and supporting children and their learning.  Likewise, I have constant opportunities to enrich learning by applying transferable skills from my professional past such as art, cartooning and ICT/computer skills.
