Head of Art & Head of Year 8

Following a love of the arts from a young age, I completed an Art Foundation at Wimbledon University before obtaining a First Class Honours Degree in Illustration at The University of Portsmouth. Between these years, I worked as a Special Needs Teaching Assistant at my local Primary school, inspiring a passion for working with young people, in an environment where no two days were ever the same. My decision to teach Art took me to Goldsmiths University, where I worked for a year in a selection of very different London schools to develop my own teaching practice, pedagogy and complete a PGCE. Since then, I have worked in a large secondary school teaching pupils from year 7 to 13, relishing the opportunity to teach such a range of ages and abilities.

The path I chose, while inspiring me to teach, also led me to my fiancé Stephen, who will be joining me in Guangzhou at The BSG. Brought up in a selection of countries, his experiences of learning in international schools planted the seed of us teaching abroad...The location and culture made China, and The BSG an easy choice!

My fiancé and I are moving to Guangzhou together and are really excited to indulge and explore China and hopefully some of the nearby countries. While I am not exactly keen, I relish the challenge in running and took part in The Great South Run for the first time last year. I am an enthusiastic baker (with a guilty passion for The Great British Bake Off), and enjoy visiting new Art exhibitions in London. I am really looking forward to experiencing the culture and Artwork China and East Asia has to offer.
