A native English speaker from the United Kingdom and a graduate from the University of Wales, Newport, UK. I have gained a Masters in TESOL from Sunderland University. I have over 11 years teaching experience in Thailand, Hong Kong, Vietnam, the Ukraine, China and most recently Myanmar. All my experience has been gained working in international schools and nurseries, with the majority following the EYFS framework. During my international teaching experience, I have held a variety of roles – Head of Early Years at the British International School Ukraine and Curriculum Coordinator at Huili Nursery Shanghai, part of the Wellington China Group. I have had experience in start-up nursery projects, promoting good practice and developing teachers, classroom set-up and continuous provision and developing literacy within Early Years.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and travelling. I have two sons, my eldest son Ryan is living in Qingdao and my youngest son, Connor is studying at UNSW in Sydney.
