I was born in Nottingham but spent most of my childhood in Norfolk, a beautiful county in the East of England. I completed my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University of East Anglia, and then took up a teaching post in an independent boarding school in the Norfolk countryside, teaching Year 5 and KS1 Spanish and French. My next adventure was to Poland to work in the Nord Anglia school in Warsaw. This was a fantastic opportunity to be immersed in a different culture and whilst I found speaking Polish very challenging, I certainly enjoyed improving my knowledge of European history!
I spent my first year at BISC-LP in Year 6 and after teaching throughout the school last year, I was lucky to see the continuous learning journeys in each year group. I am very much looking forward to working in the EYFS department and excited to see the children grow in confidence in their own learning. My favorite part of teaching is being able to enjoy the company of young minds and inspiring them to make the best of their individual strengths and talents. One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them.
Outside of the classroom, I like to keep fit, play the piano and violin, and try out different cuisines. Recently, I enjoyed learning to play softball in a social league in Chicago and cannot wait to start the netball season. I also love to travel and hope to continue ticking off countries on my bucket list soon!
