Kirsty O'Brien

Kirsty O'Brien

Foundation 2 Teacher

Originally from Scotland, Kirsty holds a BA in French and Spanish and a PGDE (Primary), both from Strathclyde University in Glasgow. Growing up, as well as living in different parts of the UK, Kirsty also lived in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates so has experienced first-hand attending International schools and the wonderful benefits they can bring.

Kirsty has taught in Scotland, Qatar and, most recently, spent five years back in the United Arab Emirates where she taught at the school which she attended as a child! Since moving to Switzerland in 2018 with her husband and 3-year-old son, Kirsty has focussed on settling in her family to Swiss life, as well as welcoming a new daughter, born in February 2019.

A keen skier, Kirsty is looking forward to spending some time in the mountains this Winter and hopefully introducing her son to the sport, as well as making the most of the wonderful Summer weather, exploring the surrounding areas and all they have to offer.
