    After graduating from the University of Wales, Newport in 2004, I immediately entered the world of teaching.  I have been very lucky to experience teaching in all age groups and ranges but feel that I relish the experiences that come with the younger age groups. 

    I taught for many years in a Nursery classroom in Cwmbran, Wales where I also worked with the local government to assist with the introduction of the Foundation Stage.  Our classroom was involved in a small pilot scheme that gave feedback and offered ideas for change within the new curriculum.  This was a great experience for me both personally and professionally. 

    In 2010 I decided to move to the United States primarily working with soccer clubs and their players.  I liaised with soccer clubs to help improve their curriculums and also offered soccer coaching courses through the NSCAA. After two years I realized that I missed teaching and decided to make the move back into what I love. A very dear friend of mine recommended the British International School of Boston for its great staff and dedication to children.  I am very lucky to be a part of something so forward thinking and dynamic in its approach to teaching and learning.

    After studying Early Years Education Studies and earning a First Class BA (Hons) degree, I undertook a PGCE at Liverpool Hope University.  I worked for four years in a large primary school in the Wirral (England) where I taught children in Reception.  In addition to my role as class teacher, I was a member of the senior leadership team and led the Foundation Stage in this setting.  Whilst working, I studied for a Master’s degree in Teaching and Learning which I completed in 2013.

    Working internationally has always been something which I have been keen to do.  An international school is a unique environment to work in as it presents a new range of demands and expectations.

    I am the longest serving member of staff at the British International School of Boston and have been teaching here since 2001. Before working at BISB, I was teaching in York, UK. In total I have been teaching children for 23 years. My initial degree was in History, and after I had graduated from the University of Wales, I completed my P.G.C.E. at the University College of Ripon and York St. John in York. I have taught across the range of primary year groups. Before I left the UK, I was the Senco at the school that I worked. Teaching in Reception this year will mean that I have taught all the grades from Nursery to Year 6 in my career so far.
