I studied French and Spanish at the University of Edinburgh and graduated with an M.A in Spanish and French with First class honours. I also received an M.Sc. in Portuguese and Linguistics from Georgetown University, Washington D.C. and a Masters and Doctorate in Education from the University of the West Indies. I have taught at both secondary and tertiary levels and have been closely involved in syllabus development and assessment with the Caribbean Examinations Council. I am currently a member of the National Advisory Committee in Education which advises the Minister of Education on policy issues. My research interests are in the areas of foreign language teaching and learning, teacher education and gender and education and I have published several articles and chapters in books on these topics. I was Head of the School of Education from 1998 to 2003 anad currently I am coordinator of the undergraduate programme in Education. I am married with two daughters.

At the undergraduate level I studied Spanish and English at the University of the West Indies. After teaching at the secondary school level for 11 years I graduated with an M.Ed. in Education from the University of the West Indies, with a specialisation in Teacher Education. I hold Ph.D. in Education from the University of Sheffield. My teaching involvement includes the tertiary level, both in the past and currently. My formal learning experiences span a variety of areas which satisfy my self-development needs. I have served on the National Textbook Evaluation Committee, and as assistant examiner at the Caribbean Examinations Council level.
