Time at Airthrie: 09/11/1999 (18 years ago)
Qualifications: Teaching Certificate London

I began my teaching career in London after training at the Froebel Educational Institute (now part of the University of Roehampton).

Sometime later I moved to Cheltenham, teaching in local schools, and after a while became the Deputy Head of the new St Mary's Infant School in Prestbury!

My next career move was to Bonn in West Germany accompanying my husband where we both worked at the British Embassy Preparatory School. I enjoyed many happy years in this international environment.

In 1999 we returned to Cheltenham and I soon 'discovered' Airthrie where I taught Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes for many years. I now enjoy coming in to teach cookery to Year 1 pupils on Tuesday mornings.
