    Rachel O'Neil

    I was born in a small town in Scotland, exactly in the middle of Glasgow and Edinburgh. I attended Aberdeen University where I gained a bachelor's degree in Primary Education. While studying, I worked in Spain every summer. This experience inspired me to take my teaching career further afield. After completing my initial teaching year in Scotland, I went on to teach in Dubai for the past seven years. I taught a range of classes from Early Years to Year 6.

    Libby Hopwood

    I was born in Nottingham but spent most of my childhood in Norfolk, a beautiful county in the South East of England. I completed my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University of East Anglia. Then I took up a teaching post in an independent boarding school in the Norfolk countryside, where I gained much valuable teaching experience. My next adventure was to Poland. It was a wonderful opportunity to work in an international school, The British School, Warsaw, where I was Head of Year 3.

    George Sainsbury

    I grew up on the beautiful southern coast of England with my two brothers, a sister, and a succession of pets. I attended Mountbatten School in Romsey, Hampshire, and went on to study for a bachelor’s degree in communication at Bournemouth University. When I was young, I always wanted to be a primary school teacher. so, I decided to venture to London and undertake a PGCE at Kingston University. I qualified as a teacher in 2006 and made the move back to Bournemouth. Throughout my teaching career, I have taught in three large, multicultural junior schools. Special Educational Needs is a real passion of mine and for eight years, I was a Senior Leader and led Inclusion in two schools. In 2012, I gained a post-graduate certificate in Coordinating Special Educational Needs from Exeter University.
