Professional Background

I successfully completed the BEd Primary Education degree at the University of Plymouth where I specialised in English teaching. Since this time, I have delighted in taking effective whole class responsibility as a supply teacher in the South West of England. In this role I forged a broad ability to deliver rewarding learning experiences and I secured a reputation as an adaptive, caring and hard- working teacher. My managerial background enables me to take effective responsibility in a supportive, calm and friendly manner. I place great emphasis on developing professional, multi-modal relationships with pupils, parents and school staff. Having recently joined the Thames family, I greatly look forward to contributing to the growth of the school.  

About me

I am a professional, multi-talented individual who approaches each day with a positive and motivational attitude. Aspiring to help others and the joy of working with children form the bedrock of my teaching journey. As a frequent visitor to Poland, the unique appeal of teaching at the Thames British School is one which I greatly look forward to. It has long been a desire of mine to live, work and spend time with friends in the heart of the charming, historic and exciting city of Warsaw.  

My teaching philosophy

My teaching ethos encourages every child to take ownership of their own learning through cultivation of critical thinking and exploration. To achieve this, I believe the classroom environment must be an inclusive one which embraces each person’s needs while encouraging the highest expectations. As a trained literacy specialist, I am passionate about applying creative writing, storytelling and drama into my lessons. Such elements entice different viewpoints within a story and inspire children to ask more meaningful questions. This supports deeper understanding of texts and results in richer writing output. For me, the most rewarding aspect of teaching is working alongside the children. I enjoy applying my personal interests of English, history, technology, space and music into my lessons.
