Short biography
Mary Chiappe was born in Gibraltar of a Gibraltarian father of Italian extraction and a Spanish mother. Brought up in the odour of prep school and "flamenco". Trained as a teacher in UK. Entered politics on her return to Gibraltar, was elected and served briefly in the Gibraltar Legislative Assembly. Moved to UK for the following twenty years. Her life has been filled by a fellow teacher/painter/potter whom she married; two daughters; four grandsons; thousands of students over the years, and many friends. In 1995 she published a volume of Light verse, "A Handful of Poems"; and after her retirement from a lifetime of teaching at secondary level in England, Spain and Gibraltar she published "The Grapes of Warmth" in 2003, an autobiographical account of the move that brought her from Sussex back to Gibraltar (land of her forefathers) and Spain (land of her foremothers). In July 2002 she became a columnist with the "Gibraltar Chronicle".
