What I love about the British College of Brazil, is not only the wonderful children we have the pleasure of teaching, but the whole school ethos in general. I love the way we teach these fantastic young individuals to be well-rounded people who have empathy, consideration and well thought out opinions about a range of social, academic and cultural topics. 

My academic background is predominantly based in the Arts. I studied a degree in English Language and Literature at the University of Northumbria, followed by a Postgraduate degree in Primary Education, and I also spent some time studying law. My academic background has enabled me to be a successful teacher, and I hope to continue my studies in the future to ensure I am always continuing to learn about how the be the best possible practitioner for the young children we teach. 

Although BCB is the first international school I have been employed at, before taking the decision to teach in Brazil, I had a lot of teaching experience in different areas of the UK. I thoroughly enjoyed working as a Learning Mentor at a North London junior school, this experience taught me greatly about working with children and families from different cultures and I was able to engage with families who needed support. I then moved back to the North East of England, where I am originally from, and worked in two different primary schools as an UKS2 teacher. 

Though teaching is a big part of my life, and indeed what I spend most of my time doing, I also have other interests. Since moving to Brazil, I have taken up Yoga classes, I also like to swim, read, bake and sing. I spend most of my free time with friends and with my West Highland Terrier puppy, Elma.
