I've always had a love of languages and I developed this love through travel in Latin America and teaching in Spain. When I eventually settled back in the UK and started work as a Primary School Teacher, I focussed on transferring my enthusiasm for languages to my young pupils. I strongly believe that learning another language opens a child's mind and develops a greater understanding of other cultures and an appreciation of difference. After 6 years working in inner London schools, I have seen the effect of the demands on teachers' time and workload and have found that MFL is often the subject to be dropped. I created the Spanish Classroom to give teachers the confidence to teach Spanish to a high level and enable all students to explore the wonderful world of languages!
