Simon has been teaching modern languages (principally French and Spanish) since 1996, including 20 years at a comprehensive school in Skelmersdale in the North West of England. He spent over half that time as Head of Year and Head of House and was also Curriculum Leader for MFL for a while. In 1997 he opted for voluntary redundancy and spent six months travelling through South and Central America. This included two months doing TEFL training at a school in Barranquilla, Colombia. He has spent the last two years as Head of French at Belvedere British School in Abu Dhabi and is now really looking forward to joining British School of Tashkent and learning Russian.
