Lynne Spencer starts at Pool Academy as an Art teacher this term.
She has lived in Cornwall for 19 years and taught in various schools across the county.
She said: “I grew up in Oxford and have always been excited by Creative Arts, from creating artwork myself to attending both music and drama performances.
“I have a passion for travel and this leads to inspiration for my own artwork and the projects I create with students.
“I am really excited to join the Creative Arts team at Pool Academy and help the students to develop and extend their artistic skills and create some amazing work.”
Claire Meakin, Pool Academy Principal, said: “We are very lucky to have Lynne working with our students this year. She offers a wealth of expertise and a determination that every student will achieve their potential. I have no doubt students will enjoy and thrive in Lynne’s lessons.”
