I was one of those people who knew from an early age I wanted to be a teacher. I completed my BA(QTS) degree in Education with English at the University of Surrey, Roehampton (South West London) and then continued to teach in an inner city primary school for three years. Travelling around South America, I volunteered in an orphanage, taught English to street kids in Bolivia, and taught English to teenagers and adults in Columbia. I thought this would be my 'travelling fix' but instead wanted to see more of the world and so embarked upon my international teaching career. A friend had expressed how friendly and beautiful Thailand was so I applied for a job in Bangkok.
After two years I moved to Nairobi, Kenya, and then experienced five years in Bratislava, Slovakia at another Nord Anglia school. My love and enjoyment of living in Bangkok and experiencing travels in Thailand has always resonated very highly for me and when a job arose two years ago at St Andrews International School I leapt at the opportunity to apply. I am incredibly happy to be back, and although much has changed in the years that I have been away, it is nice to also return to some familiarity in the city and know that new adventures await. I'm keen to try new things, after all, as a teacher I expect my class to challenge themselves all the time! I love being outdoors and exploring new places.
I am a keen cyclist and have recently started to learn to run. I have enjoyed challenging myself, taking part in various races and triathlons in and around Thailand. I have a dream to cycle from Cairo to Cape Town, one day...
