I have always wanted to be a teacher and absolutely love my job. I find every day rewarding and thoroughly enjoy the challenge of working with students from different backgrounds and cultures. I am passionate about establish inclusive classrooms and developing positive school culture, community and identity. Throughout my career I have worked in a range of school settings, teaching pupils from the first year of Secondary School right through to Year 13 A-Level and IBDP. I have taught across the Humanities; teaching Geography, History, Religious Education, PSHE, and Theory of Knowledge. However my real passion is History.
In my spare time I enjoy playing Australian Rules Football and play in the Philippine Australian Football League here in Manila representing the mighty Manila Dingoes. I also love the gym, cooking and venturing out to explore one of the many thousands of islands that make up the Philippines on weekends.
