Upper School Teacher

I have been a teacher since 2012, when I graduated from the University of East Anglia. I worked in a number of different educational establishments before arriving at the British International School of Charlotte. Before coming to BISC, I worked in the north of England as a lead lecturer in Physics at Burnley College. My wife (who is American) and I wanted a new experience and new challenges, so we took up the post here in Charlotte.

Students at this school are hard-working and enthusiastic and an absolute pleasure to teach. The ethos of the school and Nord Anglia Education is not one to be underestimated; being ambitious often feels like an understatement. Since arriving at BISC, there has been one exciting opportunity after another to drive learning forward with excessive amounts of intrigue and excitement.

I am proud to be the staff lead here at BISC for our partnership with MIT, through which we introduced our very own 2.009 course, along with BISC’s very first science festival.

People describe me as positive and excitable and actually a bit of a nerd. I love 3D printing and all things code (even though I am not great at it). Tinkering and designing new practical investigations almost borders on obsession for me, and I always aim to inspire this scientific thinking in my students.

My hobbies include surfing in the summer and skiing in the winter (when there is snow). I also love complicated board games (not Monopoly!).

Joining the school and Nord Anglia Education has been one of the best decisions of my life, and I am proud to be part of the family that is the British International School of Charlotte.
