My degree is from Leeds University where I studied English and French. The course incorporated studying at the University of Grenoble and the Free University in Amsterdam, giving me my first taste for living overseas. I began my teaching career over 12 years ago and have taught in both international and UK schools. I taught in the Nord Anglia school in Bratislava for over four years and before arriving in Warsaw was teaching French in a Grammar school in the UK where I was also Head of Work Related Learning and Careers Education Information and Guidance. During my time in Warsaw I have been Deputy Subject Leader in English and Head of Year 7.
Before entering teaching I worked for over ten years with an international airline and have also worked in the British Embassy in Dubai and Casablanca. I have two children, love travelling and have lived in many different countries including China, Iran, UAE, Slovakia and Morocco
