Year 5 Teacher

I am really excited to be starting another year at the British International School of Washington. With experience of schools in three continents, I love teaching across the curriculum and thrive on watching our fantastic students grow and learn.

In between graduating from Newcastle University and qualifying to teach I enjoyed a commission in the Royal Navy and working in Financial Services. The values I learned at sea are equally suitable to teaching and our school: motivation for life, commitment, loyalty and integrity.

 

Outside of the classroom I have a very full and focused family life. We love the outdoors, spending time on and in the water and exploring. I am looking forward to welcoming you all to Year Five.
