Before moving to the United States I lived in London where I was born and raised. I was inspired to become a teacher because of my own teachers when at school. At University I studied for an Education degree. This course was combined with in school training and allowed me to visit many schools, not to mention work alongside teachers that had actually taught me several years prior!
After graduating, I took up a post in a large 4 form entry school which went on to become a beacon school. During my 8 years there I had taken on many different roles and responsibilities, ranging from Key Stage Leader to PE Coordinator but knew I was happiest when in class teaching children. Despite being offered the Assistant Head position at my last school, I knew it was time to move on and try new things whilst I still had the chance. That is how I found myself here at BSW in 2008, where I have worked in both Key Stage 1 and 2, taught a range of wonderful children and watched the school go from strength to strength. It is this combination that excites me about each new school year.
