“I have worked mainly with adults with learning disabilities or difficulties for the last 9 years covering a range of topics and I feel privileged to be working with such a fantastic group of learners. The learners are enthusiastic and willing to learn which makes my job a real pleasure. I particularly enjoy teaching Local History, Computers and Digital Photography”.
