  • Description

    In March 2013 I retired from teaching. I taught English, especially adults with learning difficulties like dyslexia etc, to offenders in a prison. I have also taught computer skills and maths. I am extremely motivated person and my teaching profession of 17 years has been very, very rewarding. Teaching is my second career, my first was accounting.

    I am very young at heart… fit…run at least three times a week, visit the gym, walk, cycle and I am currently studying yoga, which is wonderful. I’m very musical, play the guitar and have my grade 4 classical qualification; I’m now concentrating on building a repertoire so that I can play and sing with friends etc. I’m fun… ask my 10 year old nephew, and very energetic. However I do like to relax and read a good book... I’m informed also that I look and act a lot younger than I am…I also feel this….probably due to my healthy lifestyle and enjoying life. My ideal holiday would be doing yoga and walking, both of which I have done many times in Mallorca; a beautiful island which I love to explore.
