WHO AM I?
I am the youngest of a family of five from Brighton in the United Kingdom! I grew up just outside of the city right next to the beautiful English countryside. I grew up playing a multiple of different sports, but my favourite was Rugby! A sport I still play and coach now in Ho Chi Minh City. After I graduated from university, I wanted to explore the world, meet new people and experience life in a whole new culture, so I took a leap of faith and moved abroad to Vietnam in 2018. It has been an incredible three years so far. I have experienced so much and have met so many incredible people, I cannot wait to keep exploring and learning!
MY EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY:
I believe that all children are unique and have something special that they can bring to their own education. I will assist my students in expressing themselves and accepting themselves for who they are, as well as encourage them to embrace the differences of others. I will endeavour to create a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I aim to bring an open mind, a positive attitude, and high expectations to the classroom each day. I believe that I owe it to my students, as well as the community, to bring consistency, diligence, and warmth to my job in the hope that I can ultimately inspire and encourage such traits in the children as well.
MY PRIORITIES AT THE AMERICAN SCHOOL (TAS):
I aim to ensure all students feel safe, secure, and encouraged to express themselves in an environment where they can grow.
To support and inspire my fellow TAS staff so they can feel comfortable and confident to teach to their maximum potential.
To embody TAS values and structures so that the school can reach its greatest potential.
I have seen more of Vietnam than the UK.
