My teaching career started in 2006 after gaining a degree in Childhood and Youth Studies followed by a PGCE in Primary Education. My first teaching positions were in Oldham, Greater Manchester. As an addition to my role, I led phonics and coached and mentored trainee teachers. From an early age, I knew that I wanted to teach and provide children with a memorable, high-quality learning experience. Since joining our school, I’ve had the privilege of teaching Year 2, 3 and 4 at the school, as well as leading Year 4 for two consecutive years. During my time here, I also co-authored an Innovation Curriculum and wrote a research paper, which I then proudly presented at the Hawaii Conference of Education.
I am originally from a very pretty, small hill town in Derbyshire, England. I have always loved America and spent some of my university years at Bridgewater State College, Massachusetts. This led to my move to Houston to be a member of our wonderful school in 2012. Our school is my special, happy place. I had my son, Jack, in 2019 and love nothing more than spending time with him, and our dog Hope. We enjoy going to museums, the beach, parks, spending time with our 'Houston family' listening to live music and exploring new places. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy reading, watching TED talks and 'attempting' new recipes in the kitchen.
