Suzanne started her teaching career after 10 years working in the Financial Services Industry. Her first teaching position was in a local authority school in Glasgow, Scotland. She then took up her first international school post in Abu Dhabi followed by a short time in Amman, Jordan. During her time in Abu Dhabi, Suzanne was promoted to Head of ICT, leading a large department and teaching IGCSE and A ‘Level Business Studies and GCSE ICT. Suzanne was responsible for introducing Moodle to the school.

Suzanne then returned to Glasgow where she spent 3 years in a Further Education College and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in the Business and Technology Faculty. Suzanne’s last position was in a local authority school where she taught Business, Computing Science and ICT. In this post, Suzanne led her Business Enterprise students to win the Social Enterprise Academy’s Dragon’s Den Competition for Glasgow Secondary Schools.

Suzanne joined BISB in August 2016.

 

Suzanne is committed to providing real-life business and leadership experiences that develop confidence and self-belief in students. Suzanne is looking forward to bringing her experience and enthusiasm to BISB and inspiring the business leaders of the future and which will help students develop into thriving, mature and caring individuals with an awareness of their global community. Suzanne is a reflective practitioner who loves bringing new ideas into the classroom and she is always searching for innovative ways to improve her practice in the classroom. Suzanne is passionate about getting the most out of new technologies to extend the learning environment beyond the classroom. Suzanne’s positive, caring approach and endless commitment ‘pushes’ her students to reach their potential.

 

In her spare time, Suzanne enjoys walking, cycling, reading and live music and she goes to many concerts and music festivals. Suzanne is passionate about anything technology and business related – when she’s not teaching it, she is reading about it (usually on Twitter!) or watching business programmes.

Suzanne was involved in many activities outside of school in Abu Dhabi and was the Chief Organiser for the Scottish St Andrew’s Society and organised many balls and charity functions for staff/parents and the wider expatriate community. In Amman, Suzanne was the leading figure behind Amman’s very first Burns Supper fundraiser which many parents of different nationalities attended along with the British Ambassador.
