Karen McIlroy, French and Spanish
I always knew I wanted to go into teaching, since I was at school.
I did and MA Joint Honours in French and Spanish at Aberdeen University and then my PGDE at what is now the University of the West of Scotland. My year abroad was spent at university in Le Havre and teaching English in Torrox, Spain.
I have taught in Scotland, Doha, Dubai, France and back to Scotland again. I was so excited to get the job at Lathallan, because it reminded me of Hogwarts and since arriving I have done everything in my power to introduce Harry Potter aspects to the school, including the way I run the Housepoints. I am a qualified Zumba instructor and recently started jogging as I love being outside.
