I call Britain my home, however after graduating from university and completing my first few years of teaching, my husband and I decided we wanted to see a little of the world beyond the UK. It turned into the first step on a big adventure and we have since had the tremendous opportunity of living and working in many different countries including Nigeria, Oman, Spain, Turkey, the USA. I have been fortunate enough to build a broad set of experiences by teaching in international schools in all of these places, almost exclusively teaching the British National Curriculum with additional brief experiences of the US system and Montessori approach. I have taught all age ranges from nursery children to 11 year olds. It has been fascinating to see the difference in cultures but what remains the same is that teaching children is my passion.
I moved with my family, (husband, 2 teenage daughters and our chocolate Labrador Tegan), to Chicago in the summer. We have dived straight in and are enjoying as many of the opportunities this amazing city has to offer as we can, including the theatres, opera, museums, art galleries, amazing food and the of course the lake. I am a keen sports person and in my spare time you can find me either at the gym, running or simply walking the dog.
