Teacher in Oxford, United Kingdom
Hello there - I'm Becky, and at the moment I'm doing odd bits of teaching and writing. In September I start a new job as an English and Drama teacher at a wonderful that puts arts first - which I truly believe will be perfect for me.
I've had a difficult relationship with my teaching career - working through stressful times but finding I can't really be me without doing it. I love working with young people, and I love that my job involves talking about books and theatre every day.
I've studied creative writing at uni at undergrad and postgrad level, so as you might guess, I'm an aspiring novelist. As I'm doing part-time teaching currently, you'll often find me in the nooks and crannies of cafes, tapping out the next chapter or reconfiguring my novel structure spreadsheet. Bookish, nerdy and proud.
In 2014 I married a fellow literature geek and our house is overflowing with books. We like it that way.
