I graduated with First Class Honours in Primary Education in 2004 from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. I taught in Scotland for four years before starting my international teaching experience in The British School of Chicago, one of our Nord Anglia sister schools. There, I taught Early Years and had the additional responsibilities of Literacy Co-ordinator and Modern Foreign Languages Co-ordinator. I also spent two years in the Canary Islands teaching in a British International School where I gained invaluable experience teaching children with English as an additional language. I have always loved New York as a city and was delighted to take up post at the school at the beginning of 2014. Since joining the school I have taught in Early Years however, this academic year, I currently teach Year Two with the additional responsibility of being Head of Lower Primary (Key Stage 1).
I am a very active person who enjoys keeping fit, having trained in dance for several years. In my spare time, I regularly attend the gym and in recent years, I have taken up running. I enjoy a challenge and have completed the Seattle, Chicago and New York Half Marathons. I have also taken part in many charity events such as stair climbing 81 floors of one of the tallest buildings in the Chicago Skyline! I attend Spanish lessons and have really enjoyed learning a new language and deepening my understanding of the Spanish culture. I love to travel and experience new cultures and have therefore visited many countries all over the world.
I am truly delighted to be living and working in such a vibrant place as New York. I love the diversity and unique buzz this city has to offer. I am proud to be part of the Nord Anglia Education group and very excited to be part of this growing school.
