Karen's story

I was a nanny. Now I’m a teacher.

Karen Setters from Liverpool wanted a change in direction after working as a nanny and in a nursery. She retrained as a teacher through the East Sussex Teacher Training Partnership.

“My husband and I were living in London and wanted a quieter pace of life, so we decided to move to Hastings which we love.

“He encouraged me to follow my dreams and I got a job as a teaching assistant at St Peter & St Pauls Primary School in Bexhill.

“After a year I went on to train to become a teacher while I was working at the school. I love it and feel that I have achieved what I have always wanted to do.”
