We are delighted to introduce our newest member of staff, Olivia, who will be starting work with Flourishing Families in September. Olivia is a language specialist and has lots of teaching experience with both adults and children. Join me as I find out a little more about her with the help of a few questions…

Hi Olivia! Tell me about yourself… where are you from?

Hello! I’m originally from Teeside.

What were you doing previously?
I’ve done a few different things- involving working and studying as a teacher of English as a foreign language. More recently, I’ve just finished my MA in Education Studies and International Perspectives.

Where is the most interesting place you have visited?
I love travelling and exploring new places! It’s hard to pick one, but I’m a big fan of Krakow and Rome.

What is your favourite thing to cook or bake?
I’ve got a really sweet tooth so basically anything sweet. I like to bake things that involve chocolate and peanut butter!

What excites you most about joining FFL?
I love everything that Flourishing Families does , but I’m really looking forward to working and developing the English language teaching side of things.
