Alongside teaching, I studied sports and physiology and focused specifically on the physical development of children aged 3-11 years. I worked closely with a number of schools in Liverpool designing fitness programs for students and teachers alike as well as demonstrating how children can benefit educationally from a kinaesthetic approach to teaching in the classroom.
After graduation I applied to teach in Doha, Qatar. I spent 2, very happy, years teaching year 1 children. This was both an enjoyable and challenging introduction in to teaching my own class as all of the children were ESL learners. From there, I went on to teach in London and Dubai learning from colleagues and students alike along the way.
Prior to taking on a position with The British School Wasaw I spent a year out on maternity leave in Vietnam with baby boy. This experience gave me a whole new insight in to child development as I was (and still am) amazed at just how much their minds absorb and reason and respond to new situations and surroundings every day.
I have been in Warsaw for a year now and have moved from the cosy, welcoming school campus at Dabrowskiego where I taught Year 1 children, to the very impressive school campus at Limanowskiego where I have taken on the role as Deputy Head of Primary.
This is a new adventure, an exciting learning curve and a chance to share my passion for outstanding teaching and learning throughout the whole school. I look forward to working closely with all of our amazing teachers and students to be the best school that we can possibly be.
