    My name is Anna, and I am from Dublin, Ireland. Having completed my Undergraduate degree in History, Politics and International Relations from University College Dublin in 2013, I moved to Mombasa, Kenya, where I lived for a year managing an educational volunteering programme in a small village, working with a local school. This experience was to inspire me to train as a teacher, and I gained my iPGCE from Sunderland University in 2017, while living in Dubai.

    Year 5 Teacher

    Grace Halls

    After graduating with a law degree, I gained my Post Graduate Certificate in Education in the UK in 2010. I began my teaching career in the south west of England and taught in KS1 for two years before embarking on my international teaching career. Over the last seven years, I have worked across three different Nord Anglia schools in Vietnam, Hong Kong and most recently Myanmar.

    My experience in Asia has provided me with a sound understanding of teaching and supporting children in an international setting as well as meeting the needs of EAL learners. By the end of this year, I will have taught across all primary year groups and this has helped me to develop a good sense of learning progression and the development of children across the primary ages.

    After qualifying as a teacher I worked for two years as a class teacher and ICT coordinator in the UK before emigrating to Finland in 2008. Aside from a year spent teaching in the UAE, I worked for nine years in Finland, first as a class teacher and latterly as the lead teacher for digital learning. I strongly advocate the effective use of technology in education. Part of my role was to assist my fellow teachers in integrating technology into teaching and learning as well as leading our digital strategy. Outside of this role, I provided training for teachers from other schools across southern Finland.
