I am originally from Ontario, Canada. I have a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry, as well as a Bachelor’s in Primary Education. In addition, I completed a Masters in Educational Administration in 2013. In 2018, I finished a 5-year Doctorate in Education at the University of Glasgow, focusing on making assessment meaningful in Primary education.
I have been teaching overseas for the past 10 years, working with children ranging from three to twelve years from many different countries and cultures. For the past 5 years, I have been working in Primary leadership, ensuring schools are active, enjoyable and academically rigorous.
I strongly believe that quality education is paramount to success and that lifelong learning starts from childhood. Making children passionate about both personal achievement and creativity are key throughout Primary years, and this comes from education that motivates, engages and supports pupils. I also believe that education involves volunteering and connecting to the community, and love getting involved within the community.
In my personal life, I love cooking, hiking, cycling and spending time with my husband and dog, Pip. I love being outdoors and connected to nature.
