A Manchester native, I have been teaching at British International School of Washington since 2018 having moved here after spending time teaching in my hometown, Manchester and Sheffield in the UK. I teach Spanish and Global Perspectives and have the pleasure of teaching in both the primary and secondary departments at the school, as well as being a Year 8 form tutor.
Having studied at the University of Manchester, gaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in French and Spanish, I trained as a teacher, graduating in 2012. My teaching career has taken me across primary and secondary classrooms in Manchester, Sheffield, and Peru with my most recent position being Head of Languages at an all-boys private school in Sheffield.
Outside of the classroom I enjoy a range of music and world cinema; watching football, in particular Manchester United; traveling and of course, languages.
I am a passionate linguist who loves seeing pupils love of learning. I like my lessons to be creative and interactive and love seeing pupils have a ‘lightbulb’ moment in which they work something out they’ve been struggling with. I enjoy seeing pupils become curious about languages and love the smile on their faces when they achieve.
