After I had completed my PGCE, I worked for one year in the UK I choosing to pursue a career in international teaching. My first international post was in a private international school in Kuwait; I taught predominantly local Kuwaiti children as well as a variety of Gulf-nationality children, all of whom were additional language learners. I taught Year 3 initially before moving on to Year 6. These positions helped me build and further develop my skills as a primary teacher in an international setting.

While in the school I was able to take on a variety of rewarding roles and responsibilities. In my third year at the school I took on the challenge of both being a Year Leader for Year 6 as well as being the school’s Gifted and Talented Co-Ordinator. These were two highly rewarding positions which gave me a broader appreciation for how both children and adults (including myself) learn. I was also able to help coach a highly successful school football team, achieving a trophy winning unbeaten season in their second year together.

I am highly passionate about sports, in particular Rugby, Touch Rugby and Gaelic Football. I try to involve myself in as much sport as possible during my free time, regularly playing in 15-a-side and 7-a-side Rugby competitions. Apart from sport I find travelling and photography two hobbies which go hand in hand; I like nothing better than getting lost in a remote part of town, exploring relics of the past or adventuring through unusual landscapes and having the photographic evidence to prove it.
