Prior to undertaking my PGCE at Canterbury Christchurch University, I completed my undergraduate degree at Nottingham University in Italian and European Studies. I then worked at a finance company in London before embarking on my next exciting challenge.
My teaching career began in my hometown of Cambridge in 2008. Over the past seven years I have had the opportunity to teach a variety of different age groups ranging from Year 2 to Year 6, as well as teaching French and Spanish as a specialist teacher. Four years ago my husband and I re-located to the UAE and since then we have fully embraced the lifestyle and culture that this wonderful country has to offer.
I am passionate about teaching and I believe in fostering an environment where children feel secure and are inspired to take ownership of their learning. I enjoy finding ways to make learning fun and interactive with a strong emphasis on making it memorable by giving it a real purpose.
When I’m not teaching I enjoy travelling and experiencing new cultures. I am passionate about languages and can speak Italian, French and Spanish. I also have a keen interest in drama and enjoy writing, performing on stage and also working behind the scenes.
