After graduating from the University of Chester I worked in Liege, Belgium as an English language teacher before returning to the UK. I lived in Manchester, UK for seven years where I worked across the EYFS phase in various schools. I am passionate about the environment and as part of this enjoy spending much of my time outdoors. I am an avid gardener and am eager to put my skills and knowledge of this to good use here at The British School of Brasilia. As a vegan, I often grow fruits and vegetables which I am able to prepare and cook for myself. Travelling has always been important to me, taking opportunities to explore and learn from other cultures. I enjoy learning languages and presently speak French and Italian and I am taking this opportunity to learn Portuguese whilst living here in Brazil. In my spare time I enjoy reading and listening to music. When possible, I enjoy working with wood, carving and whittling small pieces for pleasure.
