Lucy Jacobs

My name is Lucy and I am the Mother Tongue English teacher for the International department.

I love teaching children and watching them develop, progress and grow so much in confidence.

I can be quite a disciplinarian but I love to have fun whilst learning with them.

I have previously been told that my speciality lies with story telling, making educational videos seem fun and singing and dancing with the children to their favourite nursery rhymes.

My class makes me so proud everyday and I feel very privileged to be a huge part of their amazing life journey.

I have been working with parents and children for 26 years and have a medical background in Nursing, Health Visiting and Psychotherapy.

I worked for 3 years as a Mental Health Specialist with children and young people and then in 2015 I became a Teaching Assistant working primarily with 2 - 4 year olds in a school nursery in England. In February 2017 I obtained my CELTA (Cambridge teaching English to speakers of other languages) qualification in Sicily.

I have 2 grown children of my own and a cat! I moved from England to Lucca only 3 weeks ago so I’m still adjusting but I plan to stay! I’m learning Italian, I love to dance and I enjoy walking and socialising with friends. I’m looking forward to getting to know you all. :)
