Literature has been a great passion of mine from an early age, and I decided to study the subject at degree level in my home town of Bristol.
In 2014, I moved to Brighton to complete my PGCE and fulfil my dream of becoming a teacher. I then started working in a boarding school sector in East Sussex, where I also took charge of the Film & Media department at the High School college. My love of teaching Film & Media really grew here as I began to see the wonderful creative and analytical work the subjects inspired in students, and the relevance of the subject for young people made me decide to focus more on this aspect of my teaching, and initially attracted me to make the move to Nord Anglia.
My love of learning and the arts permeates all aspects of my life; I am rarely to be found without a book in my hand or out enjoying a new play, an exhibition or the latest cinema release. I also manage to squeeze the odd audio book in whilst out running, and completed my first marathon last year.
