Michelle is excited about the prospect of returning to SE Asia and working within boarding as Head of Girls’ Boarding at Regents. Michelle believes in the importance of a holistic education that caters for the individual student alongside their moral, social and cultural education. It is her philosophy that education consists of more than a transmission of knowledge and the curriculum in the classroom and that the boarding environment has to allow each individual to develop further and reach their potential in all areas.
In her free time, Michelle enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
