Year 6 Teacher

After graduating university in London in 2014 I came to BSKL for a year as an assistant teacher, it was here I learned much about what it is to be an educator. Whilst I had wanted to be a teacher before this experience, it was BSKL that showed me the how amazing a primary school can be. Following this year in Malaysia I was offered a position in an international school in Milan, Italy. Accepting the position I was able to learn more about teaching, particularly EAL; in time I came to be involved with both the History and Maths curriculum areas. I was in Italy for 3 years before deciding to return to the UK and seek further professional development in the form of a PGCE and begin my masters in education. During this time I was fortunate to experience and learn from many different learning styles and environments in England. Wishing to return abroad, I accepted a position in Mexico City and taught a year 2 class which was interesting for me to see such a young age in a Spanish speaking environment learn English. Towards the end of the first year of the pandemic I wished to return to Malaysia and I was fortunate to obtain a position and despite complications, I came to Malaysia in January on a short term contract. Yet it had long been my ambition to return to BSKL as a class teacher and I am excited to join the team and return to the community.

Born near the Cotswolds in the UK I moved to London for university and haven't really looked back save for summer holidays in the wonderful British countryside. In the past I have played hockey, Ice, roller and field and I am a keen skier. Since arriving in Malaysia I have enjoyed swimming, badminton and squash as frequently as SOPs have allowed. I have long wanted to be a teacher as I have a real passion for engaging others and helping them to understand new things. I also see myself as a learner and this has driven me to experience many different cultures, environments and people that helps me connect with others. If I had to pick a favourite quote, the first that comes to mind is the final line of a favourite poem of mine, named after the Greek hero adventurer, Ulysses - 'to strive, to seek, to find and not to yield'

The moment a new skill is realised, the development of confidence and the drive of true inspiration is what I work to see. I intend to get there by ensuring that each day is engaging and fun for my students, that they have a safe space in which they know they have all the support they need to succeed.
