Teacher of Spanish and IB CAS Coordinator

I am a passionate linguist who loves seeing pupils love of learning.

A Manchester native, I have been teaching at the 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 have an additional role as the school’s IB CAS Coordinator. In addition, I have the pleasure of teaching in both the primary and secondary departments at the school and being a Year 12 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. My most recent position is Head of Languages at an all-boys private school in Sheffield.
Outside the classroom, I enjoy a range of music and world cinema; watching football, particularly Manchester United; travelling and 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.
I thoroughly enjoy the family feel to BISW, and I am continually impressed by our students’ work ethic and desire to succeed. This year I am looking forward to developing the school’s CAS programme and supporting our IB students to achieve excellent scores at the end of Year 13.
