A Little Bit of Background about Gail's experience.

My roles in schools have included class teacher, teacher of the physically impaired, special needs teacher, home tutor, middle manager and senior manager; working with all ages from infant through primary to adolescents and adults. I started in Haringey in 1974 and worked in and around London schools for 30 years.

I created Lessons Alive in 2001, to help children engage and love learning.  Until the pandemic, I worked in London, in children's homes but switched to working solely online. I'd already gained experience of adapting my teaching to online when one of my clients moved to Hong Kong and wanted to continue lessons! I now work with international and UK based clients.

I am one of the last teachers to have a Certificate in Education (Cert Ed) with merit, which means I didn't need to get a degree first, but spent 3 years training to teach. I went on to get a Teachers’ Diploma in Management (T.Dip.M), Consultancy Skills for Training and Development Professionals and then registered with the General Teaching Council. I'm also DBS checked.
