Having attended school in Leeds, England, I went on to study Psychology as my degree at The University of Leeds. Following my degree, I was offered the opportunity to work as a researcher on a study investigating the effects of breakfast on children's cognition. After this, I completed my primary PGCE at The University of Leeds. I had always aspired to work abroad and my dream came true when I was offered the chance to work in an International School on a small tropical island in the Seychelles. I then moved to Houston and met my partner and we now live together with our small, cheeky rat terrier Chiquito. My hobbies include, traveling, going to the gym and taking Chiquito for walks.
I have been lucky enough to work at the British International school of Houston since 2018. During that time I was a class teacher in Year 2 and then Head of Year 2. In my previous schools, both in the Seychelles and the UK I have worked in Early Years, Year 1 & Year 2. I am passionate about foundation and early years education and ensuring all children develop a love of learning from an early age. Whilst I was in the UK, I was given the opportunity to undertake my Special Educational Needs Coordinator certificate (SENCo) and was the whole school SENCo in the UK.
