What do you teach at Coleg y Cymoedd?
I have been teaching for 20 years. During this time I have taught child care to learners studying courses from Level 1 to Level 5.
What is your greatest achievement during your time with us?
My achievements are vast and varied! Since working at Coleg y Cymoedd I have become a grandmother which I consider my biggest achievement. My work achievements range from teaching and supporting students, who enter college with no qualification to graduate with a Foundation Degree in Childhood Studies.
A particularly memorable and proud experience was seeing a student achieve a UHOVI student of the year award. Personal achievements I am proud of are being nominated by students for a Pearson Teacher’s Award and by my manager for a University Award for ‘Excellence in Teaching and Learning’.
