I studied Geography and Urban Planning at Nova University in Lisbon where I got my degree and I have masters in Environmental Engineering from Lusófona University also in Lisbon.  I did my IPGCE at The University of Buckingham in the United Kingdom and did my teacher training at St. Julian’s school. It was an interesting experience as I’m a former pupil of the school.

    After graduating from Exeter University with a degree in Ancient History I decided to train as a teacher and completed my PGCE in the UK. I have been teaching for 5 years in Brighton, London and as well as internationally. Before coming to Warsaw I taught and managed a boarding house in  China. I was very much looking forward to moving to Europe, where it is easy to travel and is full of history! I was also excited to experience a new city with a different culture.

    I taught in the UK for 7 years before making the leap to teach abroad. I have worked in Beijing, Sao Paulo, Hong Kong and am currently employed at Dulwich College Seoul as the Assistant Head of Senior School with responsibility for the IB programme. I visited Warsaw last summer for a few days and fell in love with the city – as soon as I saw this job advertised, I knew it was time to make the move back to Europe.
