Molly began her journey to becoming a teacher at a small, private college in Minnesota, St. Olaf College. There she studied for a bachelor’s degree in Dance with a minor in Environmental Studies. From there she made a big move overseas to study for a Masters in English Literature at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. During that time, Molly volunteered at many local schools as a teaching assistant and a soccer coach.
Molly then pursued a Postgraduate Certificate in Education at Exeter University. going on to teach at Hillyfield Primary Academy in London, teaching in Year 1 and Year 2. During her time at that school, Molly completed an Outstanding teacher training course, was the leader for Special Educational Needs learning in Year 1 and was a coach in the Improving Teacher program. She also started a cheerleading program, the school’s first, and started directing school plays.
Molly joined the British International School of Charlotte in 2013 as a Year 1 and 2 class teacher. During her time in Charlotte, Molly attended training at MIT help develop STEAM learning throughout the school. Molly attends training at The Juilliard School to help develop and implement the Juilliard curriculum for dance at the Nord Anglia International School in New York. Molly loves all things theatrical, and has enjoyed developing and directing school plays in the past, with 'The Gruffalo' being her absolute favorite!
In my free time, I love to travel and explore, especially new restaurants and museums! I love the arts, and I try to attend as many dance, music and theater performances as possible. I am an avid soccer player and reader as well. Moving to New York with me is my husband Duncan and our rambunctious black labrador Angus. I look forward to joining the vibrant, close-knit community at NAIS-NY!
