I initially studied Law at Leeds Metropolitan University and I then had the opportunity to travel overseas. My first introduction to teaching was working at a British school in Malawi, Africa. I enjoyed this so much that I returned to the UK to complete a PGCE and then worked in the UK for 3 years. I then moved to Egypt, where I worked for 2 years. Saudi Arabia beckoned next, and I spent 8 years in Jeddah. During this time, I became a Head of Year and developed my leadership skills further.
For the last 6 years I have been teaching at BIS HCMC, Vietnam (an NAE School) as a Year 5 and then Year 6 leader. This has been a fantastic opportunity to be part of a large school going through a variety of exciting and positive changes that has seen it grow to 8 form entry. I have also had many opportunities to develop professionally through NAU. I am now very excited to be joining BSB Shunyi as the Assistant Head of Primary.
