After completing a degree in Primary Education at Canterbury Christ Church University, I worked in a small seaside town in South East England for three years teaching Reception children. The Reception team worked closely together to ensure all children made progress and enjoyed their time in school. I was responsible for ensuring the smooth transition from Nursery to Reception, school trips and was the coordinator for Design and Technology across the school. I also organized and ran workshops for parents in phonics and math. Whilst working I studied for, and completed, my Masters in Early Childhood Education.
Since moving to Boston, I became a volunteer leader with Boston Cares. This has allowed me to lead groups of volunteers at various non profit organizations and schools in and around the Boston area. I have been lucky enough to be awarded the President's Volunteer Service Award for my volunteer work.
Living in the US has always been a dream of mine and my husband and I were lucky enough to relocate to Boston in 2014. We have really enjoyed our time here so far! New England is such a beautiful area and I enjoy exploring the many varied areas it has to offer. I love to travel and my goal is to visit every state in the US. As well as travelling, my hobbies include baking and bike riding. I also like to spend my free time volunteering at various non-profit organizations around the Boston area. I enjoy giving back to the community and helping those less fortunate than myself.
What do you feel makes BISB unique?
This school has a welcoming environment and there is a strong focus on community. The small class sizes enable staff to offer a more individualized approach to learning. Being part of a global campus provides students with opportunities that are not available anywhere else.
