Teaching was always an end goal for me, ever since volunteering as a physics mentor for GCSE students during my own A-levels. I went on to study Physics with Particle Physics at a Russell group university before entering the world of teaching. I initially worked in a very challenging school to help with their A-level physics programme and to learn hands on by shadowing and teaching GCSE science. This experience confirmed that teaching is the job for me and so I pursued a PGCE in teaching science and I worked at an OFSTED outstanding school since graduating.
I continued to teach science and physics and I have had the opportunity to develop my pastoral experience as an assistant head of year. Alongside my science teaching I was able to introduce three STEAM competitions to the school, the highlight of which was the Y10 team achieving 2nd place in the national finals of the Quadcopter Challenge. I hope to develop this extra-curricular side to my work at BISC as the kids get a lot out of these experiences.
People who know me would most likely describe me as kind and caring and a bit of a technology ‘geek’. I am also into sports and enjoy playing cricket, badminton and table tennis when I can, as well as watching sports including cricket and football (American and English!). I also enjoy travelling and I have been fortunate to have been able to visit a number of European cities as well as being able to have ventured out further when possible.
This brings me to BISC, where I have already been made to feel so welcome and supported. I am excited to experience life in Charlotte and working in a school which is described as one big family and where each student is taught and respected as an individual. I am looking forward to joining BISC in the summer and being part of this unique establishment.
