My teaching career began in 1984 in Selby, North Yorkshire, where I taught French and German in a comprehensive school for five years. At the end of the eighties I moved to Madrid and a career in ELT. Most of my time there has been spent working with International House, as teacher, teacher-trainer and at one point Cambridge Examinations Co-ordinator. In the mid 1990s I spent 18 months in Vilnius, Lithuania, where I held the post of Director of Studies at Soros International House.

I have worked in the dictionary business since 1980, following brief and not very brilliant periods as an academic, then English language teacher. My career in dictionaries is bookended by two major revolutions in lexicography: the arrival of corpora in the early 1980s and - in the last few years - the transfer of reference resources from print to digital media. With the second of these revolutions still in its early stages, I'm on an exciting new learning curve (like everyone else in the dictionary world), as the nature of the business undergoes a complete transformation.

After teaching for around nine years in Venezuela, Spain and the UK during which time I did my DELTA and some teacher training I joined Macmillan where I’ve been for the last ten years. I’ve been hugely privileged in that I’ve been able to visit lots of primary classrooms in Central/Eastern/Western Europe, the Middle East and Mexico. I’ve been so lucky to see such a large number of teachers and children enjoying their English lessons and keen to learn. When working with the editorial, design and author teams I try very hard to remember my classroom visits to ensure that what we produce is always relevant, rewarding and enjoyable.

After starting out TEFL teaching with spells in the UK, then Finland and briefly Hong Kong, Sandra has spent over 20 years in Italy where she teaches a mix of classes, spanning various ages and levels. She is coming to the conclusion that she is unlikely to get back home and go into social work after travelling as planned. Some of her YL students have been with her for over half of that time and despite growing up are long-sufferingly coming back for more punishment!
