I come from a long line of teachers in my family who share a love of reading and writing, discussing and debating. I have been teaching both in the UK and internationally since I graduated from Durham University: my first full-time job was at a Language School in Japan. I then joined VSO as a volunteer English Teacher in the mountains of Eritrea. This is where I met my husband, Mr. Molson, a Computer Scientist and Teacher, who worked at the Ministry of Education in the city. Since then, we have been living and working together in different parts of the world such as the South-West of England, Costa Rica, Dubai, Malaysia and now Houston, where I am delighted to be running the World Scholar's Cup Programme. I have an MA in Social Anthropology which together with my love of Literature certainly suggests that I am quite keenly interested in how people (real-life or created) live their lives within different cultures and contexts.
I am engaged in quite a few ongoing projects that keep me busy but don't seem to be getting much closer to completion: I'm attempting to learn Spanish, prepare for a marathon and finish writing a book about my experiences on the road. I love wildlife photography, theatre and catching up with friends over coffee and family back home in Liverpool over Zoom.
