Currently I hold the posts of Head of Spanish in Languages for All and Senior Welfare Tutor Officer in the School of Modern Languages Cultures Art History and Music
After completing my degree and post graduate teaching qualification in Spain I started my teaching career by taking up the post of teaching assistant at the Lycée Watteau in Valenciennes, France.
On completion of the contract in France I moved to England. In the early years I taught Spanish and French at all levels in a variety of institutions: Colleges of Adult Education, a College of Further Education, a Sixth Form College and secondary schools in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
I joined Leicester University Language Centre, initially as a French tutor with some Spanish input, in October 1992. With the expansion of Spanish I was given the opportunity to take up the role of Spanish co-ordinator with responsibility for all aspects of Spanish provision, a post in which I remained until I joined Languages for All (ex-CML) at Birmingham University as the Head of the Spanish section in January 1999.
In January 2016 I became the Senior Welfare Tutor Officer in the School of Modern Languages Cultures Art History and Music.
