Of British origin, I am fortunate enough to have learnt to speak French at the age of 4, whilst living in the South of France. This has been of great help throughout my working life, which started in various international companies. I qualified as a teacher at the Canterbury Christchurch University, UK, after having my two boys, now 16 and 14 years old.
Since arriving in Switzerland in 2007, I have taught a great range of lessons including English Language, Science, History, Geography, Religious Education and Music, from Years 1 to Year 8. Today, as Head of Performing Arts for both Nyon and Pully campuses, I am able to combine teaching with the artistic skills of a musician and my organisational skills.
In working for Champittet over the past 10 years, great opportunities have been opened to me, such as studying on the Middle Leadership Programme, along-side other Nord Anglia Teachers from across the Globe and attending music training at the Juilliard School in New York.
Teaching is a very demanding, but satisfying job. Not only are we given the responsibility of preparing new generations for life in the real-world, but in return, we get to discover more about the richness of human nature and just how unique we all are, each with some very special gift to develop and share.
