    Primary Learning Support Teacher

    Libby Gunn

    Growing up with a close family member who is profoundly deaf made me very aware of communication needs and led to me studying for a degree in Human Communication and  Communication Disorders, alongside Linguistics. I volunteered for a year in Romania with children and young people with a wide range of learning needs. This confirmed my desire to train as a teacher and I completed a PGCE in Primary Education. I worked for several years in primary schools in Hampshire and Surrey before my husband’s work took us overseas. Living in different countries provided me with a great opportunity to experience different educational settings and I was fortunate to be able to volunteer in the schools my children have attended in various locations.
