Proffil

Mae fy ngyrfa addysgu wedi rhychwantu'r ugain mlynedd diwethaf. Mae wedi cynnwys dysgu llythrennedd i blant cyn-ysgol, i bob oed yn y cyfnod cynradd, i ddisgyblion oed uwchradd ac i ddysgwyr gydag anawsterau dysgu difrifol. Dechreuais fod yn ddarlithydd gwadd i UWIC a Phrifysgol Cymru, Casnewydd yn 2008 ac rwyf wedi mwynhau addysgu mewn Addysg Uwch ers hynny. Rwyf hefyd yn storïwr proffesiynol ac yn adrodd straeon yn rheolaidd yng Nghastell Caerdydd a ledled Cymru.
