Although not I am originally from Liverpool, I have lived in the area for 25 years. Both of my children attended St Michael’s school from Nursery up to Year 6. I started helping out as a volunteer reader around 13 years ago, when my daughter was in year 2. After a career in banking, I found it really enjoyable and rewarding working with the children, and when the opportunity arose, began working at the school, gaining experience and relevant qualifications along the way. I am now part of the Rainbow Base team and still enjoy working with the children, learning from them, while helping them to learn and grow in confidence.
