Clare Leech is Assistant Headteacher for Teaching and Learning at the British School of Houston, Texas and is also a teaching fellow for Nord Anglia University.
I have been teaching Secondary English for over 15 years. Prior to joining the British School of Houston, I was an Advanced Skills Teachers in West Sussex, where I also undertook advisory work for the Department for Education and delivered Assessment for Learning training across the south of England.
Following my new appointment as Nord Anglia Teaching Fellow in January 2014, I have been creating an on-line course on High Performance Learning in English, setting up monthly webinars and coordinating an online English specialism area for Nord Anglia University.
I am passionate about travel and have been to Africa, Asia, India and South America. In 21011, I led two World Challenge teams to Peru.
