Assistant Head of Primary, Year 3 Class Teacher

I decided to teach at the British International School of Washington as I believe international schools offer children a unique education and give them the chance to thrive, academically and socially, with a diverse range of students.

I studied Primary Education for four years at the University of Brighton. I spent the first five years of my teaching career in a large city school in Brighton where I became a computing coordinator and supported the assessment of English across the school.  Before relocating to Washington DC, I was a mentor to aspiring teachers from both Brighton and Sussex universities; guiding them through their professional placements and ensuring they are ready to enter the world of teaching as dedicated, passionate and professional staff.

The British International School of Washington is different to all other schools I have worked at because the strong relationships which are fostered between parents, children and staff ensure there is a clear understanding of what needs to be done to ensure each child can achieve both academically and socially.

I am proud to be an Assistant Head of the Primary School as this allows me to regularly visit all classes across the school, to see quality teaching in action and to support staff and students in their use of technology to enhance all aspects of teaching and learning.

In my spare time, I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to travel extensively around America and Europe.

Why do you love teaching?

For that moment when a child grasps a concept that they were struggling with.
