I completed my BA (Hons) Education Studies degree in the historic city of York, and I was lucky enough to graduate in York Minster. Whilst at York St. John University, I spent a semester studying abroad at the University of Huelva in southern Spain. I volunteered at a local primary school and this opened my eyes to the possibility of teaching abroad - a dream which has now become reality!
I was awarded my PGCE Primary Education (with QTS) from Northumbria University and upon qualifying, I taught Year 1 at an inner city primary school.
In my spare time, I love to go hiking and at home you will regularly find me in the Yorkshire Dales on a long walk with friends. My favourite walk is Pen-y-ghent, which is one of the Yorkshire Three Peaks. I also enjoy cooking, listening to music and watching Spanish films. I have a passion for travelling and have been very lucky to explore many different places in Asia.
I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching Year 1 for the past two years at BSB Sanlitun, and I am now looking forward to teaching in Year 4.
