Mary made her first visit to St. Michael’s School during the Easter 2013 visit. As a former teacher herself, and with a specialism in helping children suffering from dyslexia, she is a valuable addition bringing expertise to bear on the need to improve reading and understanding skills to the pupils and how to best achieve this. She is married and was head of The Learning Support Centre at Millfield School, Somerset for 12 years. Before that she headed up the Dyslexia Unit for the Learning Support Service in West Sussex. She has a great interest in music, especially choral music.
