I began teaching Science after working in industry for both the BBC and a geophysics research company. Having worked as a volunteer teacher with VSO in Zimbabwe, I realized just how much I had enjoyed the educational environment when I worked in an industrial setting after returning to the U.K. At that time, I moved full-time into education.
At BISB I coordinate the IB Diploma Programme and have a whole school role as Logistics Coordinator.
Learning in the IBDP
Over the years I have worked in several countries, and moved to Boston in 2003, expecting to stay for a relatively short period. However, the excitement and energy of a young school soon had me hooked and so Boston has become my home.
I am working on becoming a New Englander (a very long apprenticeship!) and love skiing and the Boston Bruins.
What makes BISB unique?
I love the ‘what is going to happen today’ energy; incredible diversity within the community (staff, students and families); strong relationships; and small groups that allow one to really work closely with students.
