Years 4-6 Phase Leader and Year 5A Teacher

I am very excited to be at BISB. The city that I call home is Birmingham in the United Kingdom and I am married to a wonderful man called Robert. I have been a teacher for eighteen years and I am still passionate about educating our future leaders, doctors, lawyers, artists, teachers.  I am lucky to have worked in International schools all over the world, including Shanghai, Thailand, Egypt and Dubai and Bratislava. My career has taken me across Early Years and all of Primary, and I have had many roles including, Year Leader, Assistant Head, Deputy Head and now Phase Leader. My love of being in the classroom has never waned and I am always excited about each day with the children.

When I am not at school I love to go to the theatre, read books and trawl shops for vintage clothes and bags, a hobby that I never tire of. Indeed, most of our shipping when we move country consists of my wardrobe!
