Glenda started her teaching career in 1990 after completing a Bachelor of Education (Honours) degree. She started teaching the new National Curriculum (1988) to Year 1 and Year 2 pupils and then, while teaching full-time, she studied for a further 5 years to gain a Master’s degree in Education Management. In 1994 she was appointed Deputy Headteacher in a large Key Stage 2 school and then continued on to a Headteacher position in the UK in 1998. During this period in her career in education, Glenda taught and actively encouraged bilingualism. She has a particular interest for Art and Mathematics and has been a coordinator for these subjects in various schools, as well as for Science and ICT.  She held responsibility posts as IT Co-ordinator supporting a cluster of local schools.

Glenda has taught pupils in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 since joining The British International School, Budapest, in 2010. She has enjoyed the challenges of previously leading Key Stage 1, the responsibility as a Primary Student Assessment Leader and she continues to facilitate our Primary Student Council. Glenda is excited by the introduction of new technology and with the opportunities presented in developing IT in the classroom. She has completed training on Coaching and Leadership and several Introductory Nord Anglia University online courses including Additional Needs and Assessment.  

Learning for Glenda is about developing a child’s confidence, opening-up opportunities and encouraging each student to achieve the highest level. She is amazed and motivated by the children’s enthusiasm and gains immense satisfaction from seeing children develop skills, apply their understanding and share their creative ideas. Sheenjoys being a part of the endless possibilities thatshe sees daily in the classroom and in different learning settings. She finds the path to life-long learning to be both exciting and fascinating.

Glenda enjoys the many varied events and activities available in Budapest, including yoga, cycling and walking. She makes time to enjoy the city’s restaurants, cafes and architecture. Together with her husband, they have enjoyed many memorable experiences while living in Budapest already. They continue to enjoy exploring places outside the city and places “off-the-beaten track” including flea markets. Their two children are adult and are living busy lives themselves but still they visit Budapest and bring their friends to stay.
