Teaching is a career that I feel incredibly privileged to be a part of. I am very passionate about the influence an inspiring teacher can have on an individual and hope to motivate and encourage the students at BISC to explore their interests.
I obtained my BA Honours degree in Business Management from Sunderland University in 2014 and then went on to study for my PGCE in Computer Science at a Secondary school in South Tyneside (not too far from Newcastle Upon Tyne!). Since then, I have had many exciting opportunities working as Computing curriculum leader and community spirit coordinator. I have had the pleasure of teaching many subjects including Computer Science, Creative Media Production, Digital Information Technology and Business Studies. I have a passion for Computing and Business and hope to pass that on to the students I have the pleasure of teaching
My role as community spirit coordinator gave me the opportunity to develop relationships with students and parents outside of the classroom setting. I thoroughly enjoy being a part of the wider school life and have been fortunate enough to be involved in organizing summer fares, social events and a variety of trips abroad including France, Austria and Iceland.
In 2013, I was given a life changing opportunity to work as a high ropes and water front instructor at YMCA Camp Letts in Edgewater, Maryland. It was this experience that cultivated my love for the US!
Outside the classroom, I enjoy traveling and discovering new places, experiences and cuisines. Climbing, skiing and running (most of the time) are great loves of mine. You will often find me planning my next adventure or discovering a new hobby.
I am incredibly excited to be a member of BISC family!
