Where are you from originally?
I am originally from Gloucestershire in the UK, but spent my early childhood growing up in Abu Dhabi. I was there until I was 7 years old, so I have personal experience of being an expat child in an international school setting.
Have you lived in any other countries?
I have been lucky enough to live in many other countries. I have lived in the UAE, Taiwan, Australia, Malaysia, Oman, the USA and now Poland.
Where and what did you study for your education?
I initially studied for an Honors Bachelor Degree in English Literature at the University of Wales, Bangor. I then went on to study for my PGCE in Primary School Teaching at the University of Gloucestershire.

I am enjoying many things so far - teaching the IPC again, working with supportive professionals, working with the enthusiastic and dedicated students. There is a lot to enjoy!
What are you most looking forward to in the 2019/2020 academic year?
I am looking forwards to many things - teaching all the fun IPC topics to come, being a part of the Christmas Giving Tree trip to Gdansk/Sopot and helping my students be successful in Year 3.
Whose your favourite historian/scientist/literary figure and why?
My favourite literary figure is Terry Pratchett. His books have been making me laugh since I was fourteen as they are a brilliant satire of our world in a fantastical setting.
What is your favourite thing about living in Warsaw, Poland?
I love the green parks, the wonderful variety of restaurants and the stunning architechture found in the Old Town.
