I have been a teacher for almost two decades and during this time, I have been fortunate to work in a number of interesting roles and meet hundreds of children. I graduated from the University of Winchester in 2000 and worked in a number of Primary schools around Hampshire and Kent in England. In that time, I taught in all year groups from years 1-6 and enjoyed a number of interesting roles including Lead Music Teacher, Advanced Skills Teacher for English and Assessment and Assistant Head teacher.
In 2012, I decided to move into International Teaching, which took me first to Bratislava for four years, then Beijing for two years followed by a year in Prague. NAISAK will be 4th Nord Anglia Education school that I have worked in. I am a true teacher in that I cannot resist passing on what I have learned and so I am very excited to be working with the school leadership team this year to learn with both the children and the staff in the school.
I was born and bred in the English countryside as part of a large family. I am the proud Aunty of four fantastic nephews and two brilliant nieces and remain close to my family. I have always enjoyed working with children and volunteered as a play leader for mentally and physically vulnerable children and as a respite Foster carer. I also love the Arts and enjoy attending theatre events and concerts. I like to be creative and dabble in many different arts and crafts. Travelling is a passion and I feel truly lucky to be part of a profession that allows me to explore our beautiful Earth and its inhabitants.
Every school and its community is unique. That is part of what makes my job still exciting after nineteen years. I cannot wait to get to know all the new faces at NAISAK and learn more about what makes the school so special.
