My passion for education developed during my teacher training in Manchester as a Teach First participant between 2009 and 2011. The experience of working with motivated and idealistic professionals opened my eyes to what is possible through education.
I have a BSc (Hons) in Zoology from the University of Dundee and have since gained an MA (Educational Leadership) from the University of Manchester. After Teach First, I worked as a science teacher, pastoral coordinator and curriculum coordinator during three years at Al Sahwa Schools in Muscat, Oman. I joined SSIS in August 2014 with my partner, Katie, and look forward to contributing in as many ways as possible to the SSIS community. I am equally excited about discovering more about China and its culture.
I like to keep active and particularly enjoy football (soccer); although I would probably benefit from spending less time watching it and more time playing it!
