I was born to British parents living abroad in Germany, and travelled a lot in my younger days, but spent most of my older childhood in the North of England. It is this background that I ascertain to my passion for travel today, and indeed for the reason that I too now live and work abroad here in Prague.
I knew from a very young age that I wanted to work with children and more specifically that I wanted to become a teacher and ensure that outstanding teaching and learning is provided for our earliest of learners. I followed that passion, working in various schools and pre-schools even during the time that I studied to become a teacher.
I gained several years of experience in England in both teaching and leadership roles, before making the move to Prague and joining the Park Lane team over 5 years ago. During my time here I have taught all foundation stage classes and progressed to first leading the Early Years team in Prague 6, and this year stepped up to become the Director of Nessie, with the ambition of creating the most outstanding environment for our children.
Outside of work I am married and have a 6-month old daughter, Annabelle, who takes most of my spare time! When I get time I enjoy updating myself with the most current Early Years practice, cooking, gardening and of course shopping.
