Vanessa Walker grew up in South Africa, and lived in England, Alaska and Chile before moving to Switzerland, which she hopes will be her final destination. She studied English, Latin and Ancient Greek at the University of Cape Town, graduating with First Class Honours. She achieved her PGCE in English and Latin with distinction. Vanessa joined La Côte International School in 2014 and works in the English department teaching MYP and DP Language and Literature. She has been teaching IB English for five years and she is invested in the educational philosophy of the IB. She also leads the MYP Personal Projects and helps out in the DP TOK lessons. She enjoys photography, arts and crafts, and spending time outdoors on the Swiss trails. She is passionate about the lessons she teaches and her goal is to make her students believe in themselves as much as she believes in them.
