I completed my teacher training at Liverpool John Moores University. During my four year course, I was able to gain teaching experience in a number of primary schools throughout Merseyside. I was lucky to start work in my first teaching post in Manchester two weeks after graduation.
I enjoyed teaching Year 4 and loved living in Manchester, but then I got the travel bug. In 1998, I accepted a position at the British International School of Cracow. I knew very little about Poland, but decided to take the plunge and give it a try with the intention of moving on after a couple of years. In Krakow, I taught a mixed Year 3 and Year 4 class. I enjoyed living in the city and made many new friends. Two years stretched to three, and then three years became four. I moved to Warsaw in 2002 after accepting a position at The British School. Initially I taught Year 2 at the Bełska site and then at Dabrowskiego. I later changed year groups to take on Year 3, then Year 5 at Limanowskiego and now I have returned to Year 4, which I thoroughly enjoy.
