Bachelor of Arts Primary Education from University of Wales Trinity Saint David
I’m from Wales and decided to move to Kuwait where I began teaching internationally. I worked in the EYFS for three years in a setting that provided children with many explorative learning opportunities. This is where I found my true passion for inquiry-based learning. I then moved to Tbilisi, Georgia and taught in Year 2 for two years. As much as I loved Early Years I really enjoyed the opportunity to work in a new year group and to gain more experience in teaching. I have worked at EtonHouse Thomson for one year and I have loved the experience!
I believe children should be provided with opportunities to learn through exploration, collaboration and play. I aim to create a nurturing learning environment that is secure, caring and stimulating. Every classroom presents a unique community of learners that varies in abilities and needs. Therefore, getting to know each individual child is very important to me as I aim to ensure every child is provided with endless opportunities that allows their confidence and learning to flourish. Children’s well-being is also an important aspect of teaching and learning. I encourage children to express their emotions and to communicate thoughts and feelings with others, whilst ensuring all children feel their contributions are respected and valued. As an educator, my main aim is to foster a love of learning and support the holistic development of each child. In my spare time I enjoy walking and exploring. A recent interest of mine is photography and videography and I really enjoy capturing the new places I visit. I also love travelling and I am very grateful for the amazing countries I have had the opportunity to visit!
