About Me

I have been teaching French and Italian since 2002, starting out in the London Borough of Havering and now currently working at The Anglo European School, where I have been since 2009. I am Assistant Headteacher, with an overview of Teaching and Learning and Inclusion.  Additionally, I am the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead. I am currently completing a Level 7 qualification to be a Specialist Assessor for Access Arrangements.

I have developed my practice to become an outstanding teacher of MFL and have successfully mentored a number of trainees and newly qualified teachers. I have experience of working with pupils across a wide range of abilities, from native speakers who read, write and speak fluently in the TL to those who are not naturally at ease with language learning.
