I attended the University of Aberdeen where I achieved an MA in French Studies and Sociology and a PGDE in Primary Education. International teaching combines my love of travel and learning. I can’t imagine having any other job!
I am so excited to be taking up my new position at The British School of Beijing, Sanlitun. The school’s ‘Be Ambitious’ initiative reflects my own teaching philosophy. I strive to promote ambition, achievement and resilience in my classroom while encouraging a life-long love of learning. We also have a lot of laughs along the way.
Outside of school I like to travel and explore new places. I can’t wait to find out what Beijing has to offer! In my spare time I love to cook and experiment with new recipes (some attempts are more successful than others!). I used to run a small modern dance class as part of the Nanjing Dance Academy.
