    Moving to Houston to live and work was a fantastic opportunity for me, both personally and professionally.  I was intrigued by the challenge of working and living in a new country; teaching such a diverse group of children; and opening myself up to new life experiences.  I had lived all my life in the UK, studying both my degree and PGCE at the University of Worcester.  After gaining my PGCE in 2010, I taught at a Primary School on the outskirts of Birmingham for three years.  During that time, I taught in Year 6 and held the post of ICT Co-ordinator.

    Houston was a city that I had never visited, but the more I read about it, the more I knew it would be somewhere I would enjoy working and living.  I was right!

    With my father being a Youth Worker and councilor in my home town in Gloucestershire, England, I have had, and continue to have, a brilliant role model to follow. My mother also volunteered at the youth club and so I spent a large amount of my infancy and childhood at the various youth clubs. For the teenagers who attended, I became almost like a mascot as I travelled with the club members on various trips, sporting events and workshops. I was surrounded by such inspirational, caring, dedicated and compassionate people working with children and young adults that I too developed a passion for helping others. I would help out as much as I could and, as I got older, it was said that I was destined to be a teacher.

    My interest in education and working with children started at a young age. This developed over the years as I completed various work placements within schools and education based part-time jobs whilst completing secondary school.

    I studied Primary Education at Canterbury Christ Church University. After graduating, I moved to Germany, where I taught in a British school in Cologne. I worked there for two years before taking some time out to travel. During this time, I spent four months in Africa, which included living with a family and helping them develop a school and orphanage in Mozambique. Following this, I returned to the UK, where I worked in schools in the south of England. I have always enjoyed having opportunities to visit and live in other places abroad, so when the opportunity to move to Houston occurred I was very excited at this new prospect. I am looking forward to the new experiences and challenges this will provide.

    After completing my Biology degree and PGCE in 1999, I started teaching Year 1 and 2 in a rural village school near Bath. Being the oldest child of four, I always knew that I wanted to be  a teacher and I was very good at organising my siblings! During my time teaching in Bath, I met my husband David, and in 2001 I moved up to York. I taught in Selby, a larger inner city school, which was a great contrast to my previous school. After a year, we moved to Cheshire, North-West England, for David’s job. I taught Reception, Year 1 and 2, and took various management roles before being appointed Senior Teacher. My daughter, Annabel, was born in 2008 and shortly afterwards we relocated to London. 

    In London, I taught at a large Primary school in Claygate, in Years 1-6, and was appointed Assistant Head. In 2012 David’s job took us to The Hague, The Netherlands, where my son William was born. I taught at the International School, The Haagsche Schoolvereeniging, teaching different classes from Reception to Year 6. This was a great introduction to the IPC, International Primary Curriculum, and teaching international students from all over the world. In 2014 we moved to Houston,where I was excited to have the opportunity to teach at BISHouston. Now, I am looking forward to the exciting developments of the curriculum and teaching in our new location.
