I started my teaching career at Manchester Metropolitan University studying English with Education. Whilst at university, I took part in a cultural exchange visit to China. This was one of the best experiences of my life. After this, I decided to participate in Americamp, spending two summers at a Special Educational Needs camp in New York. I was able to travel across the East coast of America, where I was also lucky enough to visit North Carolina, and I realised that this is where I wanted to be.
After my degree, I moved back to Birmingham to study for my PGCE teaching qualification at Birmingham City University. Shortly after, I moved to London where I have remained ever since. Since then, I have gained a Master's degree in Culture, Language and Identity in Education at Goldsmiths University, allowing me to further develop my teaching to be personalised and relevant, ensuring learning is meaningful, memorable and fun.
I have always been an advocate for performing arts, leading the children’s choir, who frequently perform at Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre, at the Classical Roadshow at the Barbican and even performed at the World Children’s Cancer Charities’ Christmas showcase in Sloane Square! I am very much looking forward to working at BISC and collaborating with Julliard and MIT to ensure children are given enriching experiences outside of the classroom.
Outside of school, I love to cycle and hike, read books, watch Disney movies and enjoy musical theatre. Being so close to both New York and Orlando provides an opportunity to indulge in my hobbies during school breaks, taking advantage of my new surroundings.
I am very much looking forward to joining BISC and being part of such a close-knit community!
