Having gained a BSc Science and Education with Qualified Teacher Status degree in 2001, I began my teaching journey in a very challenging school in Peterborough, England. As the years progressed the school became a mixture of students from different cultures, social backgrounds and abilities. I became the ‘Leader of Learning’ for Science but having spent 12 years at that school, I began to feel ‘part of the furniture’ and felt a new challenge was in order.
In September 2013, I began teaching at the British International School of Washington - very much looking forward to the new, exciting challenges ahead. Now, 6 years on, my enthusiasm for the subject and teaching has never wavered, and the delight on the students face when they enjoy the lesson is the reason I go to work each morning.
I am married and have a son called Tobias who also attends the school. At the weekends I love spending time with the family, going for walks with our massive 145lb Alaskan Malamute dog, and discovering different areas around D.C. I also really enjoy shopping and would definitely say I was a shopaholic! During the school breaks I am looking forward to travelling and continuing exploring different areas of the U.S.
