I studied for my degree in Art History at Leeds University under the renowned art historian Griselda Pollock, graduating in 2009. In 2012 I moved to Bangkok and worked at a small international kindergarten before returning to the UK to complete a Post Graduate Certificate in Education at Kingston University, specializing in Early Years and Key Stage 1. After completion, I returned to Bangkok in 2014 where I have worked in my previous school as a teacher and year leader for four years, before joining the St Andrews team in 2018.
My passion for art and art history has stayed with me through childhood, my first degree and now into my life abroad and I always make a point to visit local art museums and galleries whenever I travel to a new country. I have a passion for learning new things and my latest way to do this is through podcasts, which I enjoy most when I am out for a run. I have been visiting Thailand since 2005, when my mother lived here and have loved travelling around Asia, with some highlights for me being Japan and Korea.
My first impression when visiting St Andrews to look around was how happy the teachers and students seemed. That atmosphere has continued and extended, as I have got to know the parents and wider staff community. St Andrews ethos of being a safe, happy and supportive school is evident, in everything the school does. The inclusive nature of St Andrews International School Bangkok is so beneficial to all students and the extensive facilities and resources that are available to students makes St Andrews a hot bed for learning and creativity.
