Anna has held a number of leadership roles including Head of Art for Early Years, Key Stage 1 Literacy Co-ordinator, Director of Cultural Arts and Languages and School Mentor for Graduate Trainees and NQTs. AT DCIS, she is the KS1 Maths Co-ordinator, U11’s and 12’s Touch Rugby Coach and involved in various working parties or committees.
Anna's passion for teaching started when she was only 16; gaining experience working in schools both in Australia and Malaysia where her parents lived. She is motivated by the progress the children make and cites this as her reason for being a teacher.
She believes that children should always understand the reason they are learning and how it will help them outside of school. Her philosophy is that learning should be easily transferable between the classroom and home life. She enjoys developing her knowledge on how children learn and how best to engage them.
Anna has enjoyed her three years at DCIS and in Singapore. She is glad she took the leap and the experiences she has had at DCIS, through travelling and the friends she has made are invaluable. She has shared her passion for rugby in the school and has created the first girl’s touch rugby team who competed in their first matches against other schools this year and are hoping to win medals next year.
