I am joining the BSKL community from Amman, Jordan where I have taught Early Years and Year 1 for the past four years. In Amman, I led the development of the Early Years provision and the continuation of child led learning into Key Stage 1 as a member of the Primary Senior Leadership Team. I am enthusiastic about bringing my leadership experience to BSKL as Head of Reception. Before moving abroad, I taught Kindergarten in the United States for four years and also worked with families as a Family Support Specialist for Early Head Start; it is here where I was able to develop my passion and purpose as an Early Years educator.
Outside of teaching, I love to spend time with my family. My husband and our two children are thrilled to be joining such a warm community. We love to explore nature and hike together on weekends; we love to travel and are looking forward to exploring a new country! I love to read and I am also an avid baker.
I believe that teaching and learning should be a joyful experience and I love the sound of a classroom full of purpose, play, and laughter. Put simply, happy children are learning children!
