A faculty member of Sustainability Education.

Alex has over 15 years of experience in the education industry.  She has enjoyed a diverse career, which includes teaching in the U.K. state system, as well as international schools in Japan and Bahrain. She is an experienced IB teacher and examiner.  In addition to teaching Biology, she has worked as Key Stage 3 Coordinator, Head of Department and TOK Coordinator.  Alex is also a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Leader.  In the United States, she worked as a freelance curriculum designer, building and innovating content for education providers.  

Alex believes that an integrated and connected approach to education is essential in developing future generations capable of embracing global citizenship. In her previous school, she initiated a 'Philosophy for Children' programme which was designed to challenge younger students’ viewpoints, while developing tolerance and respect for each other's perspectives. Alex believes that each educational role, from teaching in the IB Programme to working with students in DofE, plays an essential part in developing thoughtful young people who can approach challenges and adversity with resilience.   

In her spare time, Alex loves to be outside exploring with her husband and two children. Hiking, skiing, running, cycling and camping are all on the list of favourite pastimes. Her favourite country in the world so far is Oman, having explored and camped from Yemen to Muscat.
