Charmagne Haxby - Assistant

Charmagne has always had a passion for creating and is happy that she's been blessed with the opportunity to combine this with another passion, teaching.  She has a BA Hons degree in Art and Education and P.G.C.E in primary teaching and over 13 years experience in primary school education, teaching across KS1 & KS2.  Within her teaching time, she worked in a variety of roles from Class teacher, Literacy Co-ordinator, KS2 leader through to Assistant Head. 

A decision to change her career,  with the idea of gaining more family time, more time to create and to discover past hobbies and interests found her attending a number of the Going Digital courses as part of this process and found herself hooked. Suddenly her DSLR made sense, she was able to be more creative with the photos that she took and gained a better understanding behind how to take better photos. Through the Going Digital courses, help from a dedicated and engaging tutor, listening to feedback and joining the GD community she has continued to grow her photography skills.
She works as a freelance photographer and assists with various Going Digital workshops.
