I received my formal education in Australia and have a degree in Early Childhood and Lower Primary Education. I have been fortunate to have lived and taught in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States. Over the course of my teaching career I have headed early years programmes in both private and local authority schools, ran independent toddler programs and playgroups, and taught in primary schools as well as high schools. Within schools I have established immigrant family support groups and new parent support groups, as well as working with “at risk“ young children and their family and “at risk“ teens, including pregnant teenagers and teenaged mothers.
Already residing in the area, it was a wonderful opportunity to be offered a position at the British International School of Boston. The experience to be part of a developing British educational initiative in a region known for educational excellence was a unique opportunity not to be missed. The mission and core values of the school, plus the rich international community of students and staff, added to my decision to join and to continue at the school.
