I am a graduate of the University of Leicester with a Bachelor of Science Honors Degree in Education with a Biology subject specialism. I have taught pupils from the age of 2-12 years at a number of primary schools throughout Birmingham, UK, where I have had additional responsibilities of Early Years Leader, Year 1 Phase Leader and Outdoor Learning Coordinator.
I am particularly enthusiastic and passionate about Early Years teaching, science and technology. As a teacher I am keen to discover the needs and passions of each individual child to make learning as enjoyable and creative as possible to engage and fuel their passion for learning. All pupils are unique and develop at different rates and have individual strengths and talents. I believe, it is important to adopt a child-centered approach to learning, which is based on each pupil’s interests so they can prosper and achieve their best.
Having travelled extensively within Europe, the Caribbean, the Middle East and USA, I have always wanted to teach abroad. I am currently learning French and I am enjoying the opportunities to practice my new vocabulary with the French speaking communities in New York. Since the first time I visited New York City I fell in love with the ethnic and cultural diversity that exists. I am delighted to be part of the team at Nord Anglia School, New York, and I am embracing this new chapter of my career, living and working in this vibrant city.
In addition to travelling, I enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle – going to the gym, playing badminton and exploring the great outdoors. As a treat I love to eat out and try new restaurants - I am determined to sample all delicacies at the abundance of eateries New York City has to offer!
