    Teaching is my passion.  I am a very enthusiastic and creative teacher who strives to accelerate children’s learning.  Teaching for me is a privilege, where I can make a difference to the lives of the children in my class and contribute positively to the school community.  I constantly seek to achieve the best from my children, however big or small that achievement, and celebrate their success inclusively with their parents/carers.  I have developed my career as an EYFS and Key Stage 1 teacher in a very diverse Inner City school in London.  During this time I was the Literacy and Early Years Leader, which gave me the opportunity to implement several creative and structured schemes which significantly improved results in reading and writing across the school.

    I completed my teaching degree at the University of Warwick. Over the course of my career, I have had experience of teaching all year groups in both Key Stage 1 and 2, including Reception and have had the pleasure of teaching at a large infant school and a small village church school, in Reading and Lincoln. During this time, I have taken on the roles of Subject Coordinator for Humanities and Modern Foreign Languages as well as Special Needs Coordinator and leading the School Council.

    Following our move to Houston for my husband’s job, an opportunity to join the British International school of Houston team presented itself. This is my sixth year teaching at our school. During this time I have enjoyed teaching Years 1 & 2, as well as the role of Leader of Learing of Key Stage 1 for three years. I am currently Assessment and Learning Datat Manager for Primary.
