I have recently completed an MA in Modern and Contemporary Literature from Birkbeck College, University of London. Prior to this, I received a First in BA Hons English Literature from The Open University.
I am now taking a PGCE in secondary English at the Institute of Education, UCL and am looking forward to developing my teaching skills and passing on my passion for my subject to children.
In preparation for my PGCE course, I have undertaking three weeks work experience in local state secondary schools. This experience, combined with research into current education practices, means that I have an excellent knowledge of current curriculum and teaching methods.
Prior to my current studies, I spent 12 years working with university students in student services and developing international work and exchange opportunities. I also taught English as a second language overseas in Cambodia for 3 months and worked as a camp counsellor and sailing instructor in the USA for two summers.
