About Me

I grew up in a Royal Air Force family as my father was a fighter pilot. My mother was a singer and a teacher - so I have followed more in her footsteps than my father’s. I have been teaching for 30 years now and this is my 23rd year in the international circuit. I am looking forward to getting to know all of the children and working with them to create some wonderful learning moments and memories.

Area of special interest

I originally trained as a Physical Education teacher - I love my sports, especially rugby, field hockey and cricket. In my own time, I enjoy making music, composing and recording original tunes and melodies and playing Playstation games. I also love to get involved in amateur dramatics and hope to get some productions underway at MISY.
