I have been teaching internationally since 2015, initially at The British School of Guangzhou, China and currently at The British School of Kuala Lumpur. My teaching experience ranges from Reception to Year 5. Additionally, I spent three years prior to this as a Teaching Assistant and also carrying out the role as Charity and Community Service Coordinator, therefore applying my previous experience of volunteering and working for international and national NGOs. In addition to my teaching experience, I've held roles in leadership including Student Welfare Leader and Year 4 Leader. Prior to working as a teacher, I worked with NGOs in the U.K. that focused predominately on crime reduction and prevention around homelessness. My main experience prior to moving overseas was managing a mental health housing project. Additionally, I also had the chance to volunteer with an international NGO that focused on health in low socio-economic regions.
Be the change you want to see in the world.' Mahatma Gandhi Education is such a powerful tool to enact that change we want in the world. I have always had a love of learning and believe in promoting this in my practice to encourage a life long love of learning. This is one reason why reading is such a passion for me as I feel I am continuously learning and finding new connections in my knowledge. When I am not reading, I enjoy spending my time with my husband and my Miniature Schnauzer, Dexie. We enjoy keeping active, whether that's local walks or challenging ourselves further with running longer distances, and exploring a new place for it's culture, people and food.
Student happiness to me means that a student feels able to thrive in their environment. Therefore, they are able to experience joy, positive well-being and feel a sense of purpose. Having this 'happiness' foundation will allow that love of learning to be fostered even more.
