Melanie began her teaching career more than twenty years ago after graduating from the University of East Anglia and completing her teacher training in Norwich. Initially Melanie taught all three sciences in a secondary school in Suffolk and then after a few years teaching in the Midlands moved to Somerset to take a post in a Community College in the county.

Ten years later, still committed to teaching Sciences, Melanie found a new challenge teaching students with English as a second language at Taunton School International. She has now been teaching at TSI for several years and has also taken on the responsibility of Examinations Officer which has brought Melanie into contact with all the students at TSI.

Examinations are a stressful time for any student and particularly so for students who are unfamiliar with British methods and it is rewarding for Melanie to assist students to get through this necessary process in the best way possible. Melanie continues to teach Sciences with enjoyment and looks forward to many more years at TSI.
