I have taught languages for more than 30 years. After studying for a degree in German and a teaching qualification in MFL, I taught German, French and Spanish in a local secondary school, where I was Head of German and led exchange visits to Germany. After a break to bring up my family, I took up teaching languages in the primary sector and for the past 22 years I have been teaching French and German in local primary schools. Latterly, I was involved in preparing the way for the introduction of MFL to the KS2 Primary curriculum in September 2014

I welcomed the opportunity to join the team of tutors at Rossett Adult Learning. I very much enjoy teaching and passing on my love of languages, thus enabling students to broaden their horizons through contact with other countries and cultures.
