When growing up in Chicago, USA, it was always my dream to experience living in Poland, the country my parents had taught me so much about. After a summer study abroad program in Cracow I fell in love with the country and decided to stay. I graduated from the Jagiellonian University with a Masters degree in Cultural studies and Bachelor degree in English. In addition, I have obtained a post-graduate certificate in education and the UK qualified teacher status.
I have been teaching since 2004 when I first joined the British International School of Cracow as a Year 2 Class Teacher. I also taught at its sister school in Wroclaw for a year before moving to Seoul, South Korea in 2010. After eight years at Dulwich College Seoul, where I taught across KS1 and KS2, I am very excited to be back in Europe and proud to be joining a school with such a wonderful ethos and history as The British School in Warsaw.
I truly love teaching and have found it to be just what I need to make my life rewarding and meaningful - not many people get the opportunity to help so many others within the course of one day! Outside the classroom, I’m an avid salsa dancer and enjoy watching live performances of music and drama. I love horseback riding and hope to go back to sailing to make use of my ‘Inland Skipper License’. I am accompanied in Warsaw by my husband and two children, Oskar and Eliza.
