English Teacher

After finishing school, I studied English Literature at the University of Edinburgh and quickly got into teaching, first by tutoring and then by doing a year's language teaching in Germany. I then returned to England to do a Master's in Literary Studies at York University and work at a summer school providing IB revision courses/ After this, I completed my teacher training and took up my first International School post at St. Julian's in Lisbon, where I taught for three years before joining the International School of Brussels, where I had been for four years.

In my early educational experiences, I worked as Director of Studies at a summer school providing IB revision courses and then moved onto my first international post where I worked as Head of Year 8 and 9. Upon moving to Brussels, I became an IB workshop leader for the European Platform and then was appointed as an Instructional Coach, training and mentoring teachers across the school. I have always been heavily involved in extra-curricular activities and have coached both junior and senior rugby teams, most recently as the Head Coach of the Varsity Boys’ Team and achieving our highest finish in 12 years. I have been the head of the school magazine in both my last schools and have also run MUN, ISTA trips and the Women For Women club, all of which I am really proud to have been a part of.

The subject I teach is also my passion; I am an avid reader and keep up to date with developments in the field of literature and theory. My other passion is music: writing, performing and recording. I get equally excited by nature, travel, cooking, Leeds United and, occasionally, zombie movies. I got married last summer but thankfully still have room for my second love: my motorcycle.

I am really excited to now live in Boston! BISB seems to be an excellent blend of international values and a rigorous British academic tradition. Its location in one of the world's most prestigious cities for education and study only adds to the culture of learning and development and gives the school what appears to be a very clear identity. BISB also seems to benefit from having the small school, family feel necessary to nurturing a community but, as part of the Nord Anglia education chain, also has the potential to collaborate within a vast global network and exchange ideas with other schools in different corners of the globe. What a fantastic place to learn!
