After studying BA Applied English Language Studies at the University of Reading, I was particularly intrigued by the Child Language Development and Language Acquisition modules. Having considered teaching from a young age, I then undertook my Primary PGCE at the University of Bedfordshire. This included placements in ‘Challenging Schools’. After this fascinating experience, I then began my teaching career as an NQT back in Hampshire, Andover. Having acquired Masters Credits during my PGCE, I decided to pursue this further and I have now graduated from the University of Winchester with a Masters in Education. This September I became a TLR at my school, specialising in assessment. I am very much looking forward to what the future brings!
