I studied a BSc in Mathematics at Sussex University and then went on to doing a PGCE at The Institute of Education, University of London. I started teaching in East London in two different inner city schools, holding a pastoral role. After five years I moved to Southwest London and taught in two more schools, the second being a very successful Catholic school in The London borough of Hounslow, where I spent 12 years teaching Maths up to A Level and holding a Head of year role. I then moved my family to Abu Dhabi, where I worked for 8 years in two successful international schools teaching Maths up to A level and where I held a Housemaster role.

My parents are originally from the island of St Lucia in the Caribbean. I was born in and grew up in East London. I have many interest. After university I spent time in Italy working as a dancer. I have a passion for Jazz and dabble in Jazz piano. I also love art in all forms and sometimes spend time doing pencil drawings. I love all sports, football being my favourite, but also squash, badminton, table tennis and golf.

It is every teacher’s responsibility to develop young people holistically, despite the subject they teach. Young people have the potential to achieve beyond measure and if they have self-belief, motivation and ambition, they will surely thrive. It is our duty as teachers to provide this opportunity. My philosophy is that if you empower pupils with the belief that they can achieve, they will. As educators we are tasked to extract the best from each pupil, allowing them to express their given talents in a way that will be beneficial to themselves and the world. I aim to optimise the learning of each pupil by creating an excellent classroom environment and through high expectations, where the wellbeing of every pupil is considered and every individual feels able to express their ideas right or wrong.
