After completing my A-Level’s I went out to work and over the course of the next 10 years I had a range of jobs, within the retail sector and later on working in administration. It was in 2015 when working for a charity I am deeply passionate about, I decided that I needed to challenge myself and find a new path. It was here I went to college in the evenings to do my AAT Level 2, which I really enjoyed. I then home-studied AAT Level 3 so I could go back to college in September to start Level 4 one evening a week at college. I qualified in 2017 and since then had a few finance roles which has given me wide ranging finance experience
As much as I’ve loved working in finance, there was still something missing – my dream to teach still hadn’t been fulfilled. I have always wanted to teach, even during my A-Level’s I volunteered in an infants school twice a week. Then in my adult life I’ve been both Tawny Owl & Brown Owl at two Brownies units, and I always find myself being the nominated trainer in my workplaces. So, after finding AAT, I realised I’d found what I wanted to teach and went out to live my dream. I am thrilled to be working at Accountancy Learning to achieve my dream, but my ultimate goal is to support students in a way they find beneficial. I believe in three things:
- There is no one size fits all approach to studying or teaching
- There are no stupid questions
- Mistakes are the foundations we build on to achieve our goals
Personally, I’m married with 2 stepchildren and a bouncy red setter! I love eating shortbread, I do a bit of baking here & there, attend Pilates classes weekly and enjoy doing some crochet … when I find the time!
As said by Albert Einstein – “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid”
