I grew up in Ontario, Canada with an English father and Canadian mother. After finishing university in Canada, I began my own teaching career in 2005, and I have taught in various capacities in Warsaw and Ontario since that time. My students have ranged in age from 2.5 year old toddlers to adult professionals. Over the years, I have been a primary classroom teacher, as well as spending time as a French, Music, and English language teacher. I originally came to Warsaw because it seemed exotic at the time, but I have stayed here because it feels like home.
My best memories of school were in my primary years, and in particular, I remember my incredibly talented teachers. As a child, the teacher who inspired me above all others is now one of my best friends, and we do our best to try to find time to meet in person when geography cooperates with us.
My passion outside of teaching is music. When I am not at school, I can be found singing professionally in a popular Warsaw choir, Sound’n’Grace. Through my time in Warsaw, I have tried to also keep up with the Polish language and I never miss a weekly lesson with my favourite Polish teacher.
