Sandra -web

Sandra has 19 years’ experience in the field of Education beginning in the Primary sector she then moved on to teach English as a foreign language abroad for 5 years primarily in Italy. Her 3 years teaching Military English for the Italian army she found most rewarding as well as 2 years living in the medieval town of Viterbo.

Her fascination with language inspired her to return to England to study for a Master’s Degree in Applied Linguistics at Durham University.  This then saw her pursue a career in academia as she began lecturing in EAP at Northumbria University. However, her passion for the medieval world, which originates from reading about the Lindisfarne Gospels as a child, continued to beckon.  Hence, her current fervent study for her Doctorate currently titled: “Humility and Authority in the Lives of English Saints in The Golden Legend English Tradition from Manuscript to Print”
