Originally from the UK, after graduating with an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science and Disaster Management I worked in marketing at a London based company for a few years, before studying for my PGCE in Geography from Goldsmiths College, University of London in 2010. After graduating I worked at Rutlish School in Wimbledon, London where I was subject lead for geography and the literacy project coordinator. Whilst there I founded the schools first Model UN club and regularly led geography trips to various parts of the world. After 5 years at Rutlish, I was keen to experience living in different cultures and so moved abroad, teaching geography at the North London Collegiate School Jeju in South Korea from 2016 to 2019, where I also coached badminton and rugby, before joining St Andrews International School Bangkok in 2019.
As a geographer, I really love to travel and see new parts of the world. Since relocating to Asia I have been incredibly lucky to have been able to visit so many new countries, experiencing lots of new cultures and environments. In my spare time I enjoy reading, both fiction and non-fiction; the latter usually revolving around the subject of how too many/too few people on the planet will eventually be our downfall or something similarly uplifting. I’m also a big fan of pub quizzes, and am happy to be in a location where I am able to partake in this activity again.
The focus seems to be very much on the well being and happiness of the child, and less about unreasonable expectations.
