In 2006, I was invited to become a Drama examiner for the Welsh Board of Education which I did 10 academic days per year. I have also taught primary mainstream having a mixed Year 1 and 2 class at a school in Leeds where I was the music coordinator for lower primary. On a Saturday morning I ran a performing arts group for Deaf/Disabled teenagers at Leeds Grand theatre for the charity 'Music and the Deaf'.
Learning beyond the classroom is a fantastic way to engage learners of all age groups. I was responsible for arranging the annual ski trip to Italy which was always a huge success. I have led over 200 trips in my teaching career including trips to London to visit museums and see West End shows, rafting, and kayaking.
I reside in Washington, DC. I am married and have a beautiful 7-year-old step-daughter. We love to take family holidays and particularly enjoy Disney World. In my spare time my main hobby is flying light airplanes and getting young people inspired by the world of flight. I do volunteer work for a charity that is called ‘Flying for the Disabled'. I also write for the “Women in Aviation” magazine, a non-profit organization based here in the USA.
It is an honor and a pleasure to be teaching Year 1 at BISW. Each and every day presents new learning opportunities with a broad and balanced topic based curriculum catering for each unique child. It is truly delightful to work with such wonderful children, dedicated staff and parents alike. The school is dynamic, innovative and inspirational. I would have loved to have studied here as a child!
