Initially, Sophia has worked at a primary school in Southampton. She has experience
teaching in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 and has also undertaken subject leadership in
Modern Foreign Languages and Maths, providing support and guidance for colleagues across
the school and developing teaching programmes. She has also been a phase leader, leading a
team of teachers through planning and assessment, as well as developing consistent teaching
and learning strategies across the phase. At Dover Court Sofia is a member of the middle
leadership team where she headsYear 4; in this particular role she is relishing the opportunity
to develop her skillset further as a leader.
Sophia’s love of languages comes from an appreciation of the world and the diversity of
cultures around her. She brings this broadmindedness to her teaching and encourages her
students to adopt an open, positive and inquisitive attitude towards all new situations and
people. Her classroom is a place for curious learners, looking to make sense of the world
Outside of school, Sophia enjoys new experiences. Apart from travelling, her hobbies include
exercising, attending museums and galleries, and socialising with family and friends. She is
also a black belt in Tae Kwon Do! Sophia is delighted to have the opportunity to discover
and explore Singapore and the surrounding countries in south-east Asia.
