I grew up in North West London and, after completing my PGCE, spent 5 years teaching in a state school in North London. From an early age I appreciated and understood the work of a teacher, several members of my family are educators and teachers, and this environment gave me a wonderful insight into the teaching world, and showed me how rewarding it can be as a career. My work in Tottenham was highly rewarding, working with children with Special Educational Needs, children who were new to English and were from a variety of backgrounds.
During my gap year I spent 3 months in New York and I have wanted to return to live ever since. The opportunity to work at NAISNY was sudden and unexpected, but it is incredibly exciting to be working at such a creative and innovative school where learning is so personalised for the child, and there is such freedom to follow the interests of the children in my class.
