I was born in Australia but moved to London when I was 19. I worked as a nanny and discovered my interest in working with young children. I travelled to Thailand with a friend, had the most wonderful time, and realised I would like to live here. Upon returning to the United Kingdom, I successfully completed a TEFL course where I met my future husband on the first day.
Three months later, we moved to Bangkok and began our teachings careers, teaching English in a well-known Language school. We both realised we wanted to further our qualifications. I completed a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education at the University of Sothern Queensland and a PGCE in Early Childhood at Nottingham University. We then moved to China for a short time but quickly realised we wanted to return to Thailand. Upon returning, we started our family and had two beautiful children, Zadie and Arlo and worked for four years at another international school in Bangkok. After 15 years in Thailand, we decided to move closer to family and began working in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
After seven years there, we knew it was time to return to the country we love and are happy to be here. I have two children, Zadie and Arlo, who will be joining the High School and are really happy to return to Thailand. I enjoy keeping fit, cooking and entertaining at home, and travelling to new and exotic destinations with my family. We also have two dogs that keep us very busy. My students usually say I am funny and kind and I like to talk a lot.
St Andrews was at the top of our list due to its relaxed and professional approach to learning. We have immediately felt a part of the St Andrews community and hope to have the opportunity to connect with other families.
