I have been teaching for over 25 years, after graduating with a B.Ed (Hons) First Class Honors degree and a Master’s degree, both in Special Education. The schools I taught in were primarily for children with Emotional, Behavioral and Learning difficulties. From there, I became a consultant as part of a Behavioral and Mental Health team, where I was responsible for meeting the needs of students in many primary schools.
In 2008, I moved from Manchester, England to the British International School of Charlotte with my husband, Mr. Stevens, and our three children, Hannah, Ellis and Millie.
Over the last eleven years, I have taught every year group, ranging from the 2-year-old class to our High School students. This year, my specialized role is to manage and ensure that all students with various educational needs are met. Currently, I am teaching students who speak English as their second language. I am also involved in our High School’s ‘Personal Best’, incorporating yoga, strength training, meditation and mindfulness awareness.
My goal is to prepare students to enter an ever-changing and developing world with skills, passion, enthusiasm and strive to learn, adapt and change to become successful in their adult lives.
I also run the Early Learning Club with the 18-month-old class teacher, where we welcome new prospective families to bring their babies and toddlers along.
My outside interests are yoga, the practice of reiki, aromatherapy, musical theatre, and spending time with my family and pet babies.
