After graduating with a degree in Psychology I initially began my professional life as a commercial manager with a large retail company in the UK. I moved 5 times in 5 years as part of my career progression which was good preparation for my life as and expat! In 1998 I left the UK to be with my husband in Equatorial Guinea where I began working with the British Council as an EFL teacher. Over the years since then I have worked on four different continents gaining a CELTA qualification from Cambridge University along the way.
Most recently we lived in China where I was an EAL teacher at the British School of Beijing which is also part of the Nord Anglia family. I enjoyed my time there immensely but was delighted to hear that we would return to Houston as I had worked here previously. It is great to see the progress the school has made and work in such a fantastic new facility.
My two children are also pupils at the school and as a family we enjoy lots of sports and activities such as football, skiing, swimming and tennis. Most weekends find us standing on the side of various sports pitches cheering each other on either in school teams or local sides. We also enjoy travel and new experiences and the children are both experts at finding their way through international airports.
This school is different to all others I've worked at because...
The students are always fully engaged and enthusiastic. No matter what project is thrown at them they always rise to the occasion and make me proud to be working with them.
