Craving adventure I decided that teaching abroad was something I would like to try and applied for jobs in the Middle East and this found me teaching year 6 in Kuwait and being the year leader. I thoroughly enjoyed the seven years that I was there meeting new people and experiencing a totally different culture. Needing to come back towards England I made the decision to teach in Europe which has led me to The British School, Warsaw.
I am a crafty person and have a variety of hobbies. My last cross-stitch project was DaVinci’s Last Supper (now hanging in my parents’ house). This took me just under 6 months to complete. I have also made wedding stationery sets to order and love to dabble in the kitchen. I like to sing and have already joined both primary and senior choirs at The British School.
Highest Quality Learning
I am enjoying including HQL in my lessons as it livens them up and allows the children to use different skills that make the lessons more interesting. It is allowing the children to show what they can do and have control of their own learning but also showing them that there are different approaches to learning which will stretch them as individuals as well as a team when working collaboratively.
WHAT THE STUDENTS SAY
Miss Bastone the brilliant, hard worker indeed,
Always in preparation, that’s guaranteed,
Always has a good laugh, never a wet weed,
Can whizz through stories, with such great speed,
A cat lover, but a pickle hater indeed,
When she travels far and wide, always collecting a memorable bead,
Wonderful ideas, she never disagrees.
