Mrs Lord lives with her husband in York. She has three grown up children and two grandchildren who all keep her very busy; especially with fun days out! She spent her childhood years living in Hedon, Hull where many of her family still live. She moved to York in 1991 with her husband and children to run a newsagents shop, which they did for over 10 years. After selling the business, she became a Teaching Assistant, which inspired her to train as a Teacher (a lifelong dream!). She has worked at Barwic Parade for over 8 years, where she loves teaching! She adores to travel abroad; especially with her Daughter, Sophie who lives and teaches there! Apart from travelling, her hobbies are walking, swimming and gardening and she loves reading books! As a child, she read lots Enid Blyton stories but she also enjoys Michael Morpurgo and Roald Dahl, especially Matilda!
