Head of Professional Development; Humanities Teacher

Born and bred in Glasgow, I completed my first degree in History at the University of Strathclyde. I made coffee between lectures and saved, which meant I could spend my summers travelling the world. Following this I decided to continue my love of studying history and moved south of the border to study for my MPhil at the University of Manchester. It is in the north of England that I began my teaching career, completing my PGCE at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2008.

I then took up my first post at John O’Gaunt School in Hungerford, Berkshire where I was the Head of History and Head of Year 11. During my employment here I won the Barringer Research Fellowship which enabled me to undertake research at Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, which is where my desire to work in the United States began.

Recently I was the recipient of the Sinnott Fellowship, a Pearson’s Teaching Award, where I undertook a project that focused on boys’ aspirations and family learning initiatives. I am currently working towards my MA Education at the University of Nottingham. I am delighted to lead the Humanities department here at British International School of Washington and work with such a range of interesting and talented young people.

During my spare time I enjoy travelling and the outdoors. I particularly enjoy paddle sport, especially kayaking, and before leaving the UK was working towards my first coaching qualification which is something I hope to resume here in the United States. I also enjoy reading, music and the cultural offerings of the nation’s capital.

British International School of Washington is truly an international school, and the benefits and challenges this presents makes this an exciting and vibrant place to work. Regardless of the this huge variety of cultures and backgrounds, our student body are caring, thoughtful and really look out for each other. All are bound further through a real thirst for learning and desire to take the next steps towards their own personalised goals.
