Year 2 Teacher

I am a native to London, England. After graduating with a B.Sc. in Psychology from the University of London, I travelled extensively throughout North and Central America; trained to be a whitewater river guide (during one very cold spring in the Pacific Northwest!) and assisted in the running (and building) of a guest ranch in a remote location in Southern Mexico.

Returning to London, I worked for the National Health Service in England in a substance misuse and social care unit where I worked with a team of psychologists and psychiatrists. I then trained to be a teacher after a very memorable voluntary day with a class of Year One children – I had found my passion! In time, I would like to return to my psychology roots and train to be an Educational Psychologist.

I gained my PGCE in Primary Education from the Institute of Education, University of London and taught in an inner city school in London. I enjoyed my early years as a teacher tremendously and especially enjoyed working with children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their families.

From 2006 I was teaching at the British School of Boston where I taught in Key Stage One and in the Foundation Stage. After five years in New England, I decided to move to Washington, D.C to be closer to family and to enjoy all that the capital has to offer. I have taught Year Four, Reception, and Year 2 in my time at BISW, all of which I have enjoyed equally despite their obvious differences!
