Prior to gaining my degree at the University of Portsmouth, I had been a full-time teacher in Key Stage 2 schools for 24 years.  I was employed by the University as soon as I graduated, to work in the Ceramics and glass workshop where I was made a Senior Technician.  I worked with many students from a variety of courses and also ran two evening classes. 

In 2011, I became the Digital Print Technician.  This is offered as a service to students and all the printing is done by me. Part of my role is also to work in the main EPC workshop helping students and doing Health and Safety inductions.
