Deputy Head of Primary

I joined BSB in August 2015 as a Year 3 Teacher and Lower Key Stage Phase Leader. Prior to this I taught at the British School of Nanjing in my first international post. Back home in Australia, I have over 20 years experience teaching Kindergarten to Year 6 in various schools in Australia.

I am devoted to creating a stimulating learning environment that promotes individual achievement. I also believe in the importance of encouraging children to think creatively, solve problems and take risks in their learning.

I am joined in Beijing by my husband, Shane, along with our two daughters, who attend BSB. Outside of school I ​enjoy travelling, and appreciate the opportunities to explore other countries and be immersed in their culture.
