Working Life

glittery bow- purple stories

In my mid-twenties I joined the staff of a language school. The pay wasn’t brilliant but I could make a living and there were many aspects of the job that I enjoyed. The other members of staff were also nice and I enjoyed teaching the students as well. A few years later , after returning from maternity leave, I decided to go part-time. Luckily I was able to do a job-share with another woman who had a small child. Then the school began to go through a difficult period and had to lay off staff. I decided to go freelance. I had managed to build up a new network of contacts and this gave me a good start. I soon had a , substantial volume of work, private students and marking exams. Luckily I was able to earn a good living
