During my nine years of teaching I have been fortunate to work with children from 7-11 years old and with a variety of children with SEND needs; helping all of them to explore and learn based on the UK National Curriculum. My passion in any school is to inspire all children to become avid readers, which I have been able to pursue through a previous role as English Co-ordinator. I also feel strongly about providing children with experiences outside the classroom, resulting in my position as the Educational Visits Co-ordinator at my previous UK school. I really enjoy the amazing 'out of school' experiences I BSB provide.
I was born into a military family, the oldest of 2 children. My father is a serving member of the British Royal Air Force and it is largely due to him that I have developed a passion to travel and see the world. I was fortunate enough to visit friends who live in Beijing in 2015 and instantly fell in love with the vibrant, inspiring city. I knew the day I boarded the plane to come home that I wanted to come back and I am pleased that BSB have given me this fantastic opportunity. One day I want to become a deputy head, but before I take on this challenge, I want to broaden my experiences and seek out further opportunities, hence me wanting to teach at an inspiring international school such as BSB.
I knew I wanted to become a teacher from the age of 8, when I saw a group of newly qualified teachers walking out from their graduation ceremony in a nearby cathedral. I was inspired by their passion and enthusiasm and I instantly knew I wanted to be one of them. On becoming a teacher, I also knew that my main aim was to ensure every child in my classroom had the best possible opportunities provided to them; I want them to always remember something from the time they were in my class. I am passionate about many things, not just in the classroom, but also outside of school. I am a keen charity volunteer and have spent much of my time in the UK working for the Girl Guiding Association and The Cinnamon Trust.
