SLE Specialism: Modern Foreign Languages
Paula is full time teacher of MFL at a large Primary school in South Devon and also an examiner for GCSE French. She spent 20 happy years teaching Languages in a large Secondary School, which led on to her spending 7 years working as the MFL Consultant for Torbay Local Authority assisting all 31 Primary schools in the Authority on their journey to introducing, embedding and sustaining the MFL entitlement within their schools.
Paula is passionate about the value of learning languages and strongly believes language learning should be fun, engaging and real. She loves seeing the children motivated to use the language they have learnt for a real purpose fuelled by their drive to communicate with children in other countries, especially through the Comenius projects she supports and encourages in her current role.
