Staff Profile: Nadine Le Cornu

Nadine Le Cornu

Geography Teacher

Nadine Le Cornu is from Rugby, England. She completed her undergraduate in Human and Physical Geography at the University of Reading and then her PGCE at the University of Southampton. She stayed in Southampton and worked for three years at an outstanding school where she helped develop a department, ran a course and was involved in a variety of ECAs including tennis, trampolining, cookery and the Duke of Edinburgh Award (also known as the International Award).

Nadine was fortunate to live and grow up all over the world; this exposure has allowed her to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of a wide range of different cultures, environments, beliefs and values. She moved to Colombia at the age of a few months where she lived for three years before moving to Venezuela and then to the Philippines. Having had the travel bug from a young age, teaching in an international school was always on the cards.

Nadine is a keen sportswoman and has found that taking part in extra-curricular activities is an excellent way to build relationships with students that you may not meet in the classroom and gives students an opportunity to see you as more than a teacher. Nadine has a passion for sailing, both dinghies and yachts. She has taught sailing both in the UK and in Greece, where she gained further experience in a wide range of boats.

She says her greatest strength is the ability to instil her passion for Geography in her students by creating stimulating lessons that present challenges and encourage independent thinking.
