I'm an enthusiastic, dedicated art educator with experience of the Birtish, IB and American systems. 

 

I believe firmly in helping all students to succeed. By giving students choices, tailoring units to individual needs, giving direct feedback and creating a welcoming, but structured environment. 

 

I integrate technology and art history into my teaching. 

 

I enjoy being part of school communities and thrive on being involved in all aspects of school life including pastoral, performing, sports activities and excursions.
