I have been a teacher for five years, both internationally and in the UK. I am incredibly lucky to have chosen a career that I enjoy so much and that has enabled me to meet some incredible people from all across the world. Before starting at TBS Warsaw, I taught in China, in a city called Qingdao (it is not very well known, but has a population of 9 million people!). Previous to that, I taught in a high-achieving state school in London. These experiences were obviously completely different to one another, but the consitent theme was how much I enjoyed interacting with students and discussing literature with them.
I took the decision to join TBS Warsaw due to the school's excellent reputation. I also can't deny that it will be great to be closer to home, and most importantly I won't have to wake up at three in the morning to watch Arsenal matches! Warsaw is a city that I am excited to explore in more depth. It is an exciting, vibrant and historically significant city that I would love to experience in more depth. As well as retaining its links to its history, the city has become a forward-thinking, modern, global city.
As previously mentioned, I am a keen football fan, and love playing and watching it as much as possible. I am also a runner; I am even doing the Warsaw marathon this year. If you want to see me struggle over the finish line, please come and watch (or actually, please don't)!
As an English teacher, I have a life-long love of literature. Reading is a key component of my professional life, but also my personal life.
An interesting fact about me? I have broken 11 bones in my body during my life! A combination of being a clumsy child, playing lots of sport and a very stupid accident at university have made me spend a lot of time in a lot of pain.
