I am currently P6/7 class teacher and Newcomer Support Coordinator at Fane Street Primary School. Before this I was a class teacher and then principal teacher at Annette Street Primary School in Glasgow. I studied English Literature at Glasgow University. I also worked for a number of years in what used to be called the Big Lottery Fund in Glasgow before I became a teacher. I also used to work taking complaints about BBC TV and radio programmes. I moved to Northern Ireland in 2018 with my family.
