Leadership - Knowledge - Experiential Learning
I am a UK-qualified teacher of IB programs with over 10 years experience of international education in Asia and the Middle East.
My career has been all about Knowledge: from literature, language acquisition, pedagogy, Theory of Knowledge to the links between disciplines.
I am passionate about conceptual learning, both inside and outside the classroom, as well as the pedagogy and theory which supports it.
I am a strong advocate for the value of experiential learning outside the classroom.
With proven leadership experience as a WASC Self Study Accreditation coordinator and a Head of Faculty, I love to bring high levels of collaboration to the teams in which I work.
I believe that knowledge, travel and the written word greatly improve our appreciation of the world and help to enrich our lives .
