WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE TO BECOME A TEACHER?
I decided to be a teacher because I wanted to make a difference. I take the responsibility of helping our students to become caring, considerate, and responsible individuals seriously. My teachers have always been responsible for shaping me into the person I am today. I can only hope that I can have the same positive influence on the minds and hearts of my students.
WHAT EXCITES YOU THE MOST ABOUT TEACHING RECEPTION?
Reception is a really exciting year group to teach. The children surprise me every year with how much progress they make from the beginning to end of their time in class. Every day, I am excited to watch the children apply the skills they have learned and I enjoy picking up on their varied areas of interest to drive the learning through motivating and engaging play based topics.
WHAT IS A MAGIC MOMENT FOR YOU?
This is my eighth year at Nord Anglia International School New York and, over the years, I have enjoyed seeing the students and the school develop and grow. I love our diverse, international, welcoming, and supportive community. I feel lucky every day to be able to stand outside and greet all the happy little faces as the children arrive at school, eager to meet up with their friends and start their exciting day of learning.
