I grew up on the beautiful south coast of England with my two brothers, a sister and a succession of pets. I attended Mountbatten School in Romsey, Hampshire and went on to study for a bachelor’s degree in Communication at Bournemouth University. When I was young, I had always wanted to be a primary school teacher like my mother, so decided to venture up to London and undertake a PGCE at Kingston University. I qualified as a teacher in 2006 and made the move back to Bournemouth.
Throughout my 14 year teaching career, I have taught in four large, multicultural schools. Special Educational Needs is a real passion of mine and for eight years, I was a Senior Leader and led Inclusion in two schools. In 2012, I gained a post-graduate certificate in Coordinating Special Educational Needs from Exeter University. Another passion of mine is English; I have lead English at BISC-LP for the last 3 years and thoroughly enjoy the diversity and creativity of the subject. Outside of school, I have many interests: theater, nature, history, fitness and one of my major passions is to travel; I have been lucky enough to have seen a lot of the world, but there is still so much to see.
