Whilst at school and on my year out I worked in a voluntary capacity in a range of contexts, from running a youth club to working in a German kindergarten to volunteering in a British primary school. Having found these roles extremely rewarding, I was motivated to seek out further opportunities.
Whilst studying for my degree in Psychology and US Studies at Liverpool, I wanted to experience life in a different country whilst making a positive contribution to it so volunteered to teach English in the Ukraine. This experience inspired me so on completing my degree, I undertook a CELTA course. I taught English in South Korea, Thailand, Poland, Italy and Mongolia (even making a TV show there!) before retraining as a Primary Teacher.
After working in a state school in the UK, I joined Voluntary Services Overseas to run a teacher training programme at a Teacher Training College in Ethiopia.
Since joining the International teaching sector, I have worked in Romania, Germany and Egypt. In this time, I have completed a Master’s degree in Education and fulfilled a variety of roles, including class teacher to years 3, 4 and 5, EAL and Yeargroup Leader.
Having lived in Poland in the 1990’s, I am delighted to return and look forward to enjoying my time here.
