After graduating with a degree in History and politics from Keele University, I decided to follow in the family business and train as a teacher. Following completion of my PGCE at Leeds University, I subsequently taught in the city for the next 2 years. My first overseas post was in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, followed by a post in North Carolina. Prior to joining BISW in August 2014, I worked at the British International School of Budapest, another member of the Nord Anglia family.
In the seven years I taught there, I was also the Literacy Leader and obtained a Leadership qualification with the National College of Teaching and Leadership. I have always loved the USA and think that International schools are very special places for both students and staff, therefore was delighted to obtain a position at BISW.
I love to travel and explore new places and spend most holidays doing so. I also enjoy all aspects of theatre; acting, directing and as an audience member.
The students at BISW are so hard working and well-motivated and genuinely a pleasure to work with. Having such a diverse student body makes our children understand, appreciate, and celebrate different cultures, which makes BISW a special place.
