Position: English and Year 10 Tutor
English, and Literature in particular, is my passion! Having taught in both UK state schools and several international schools for the last 12 years, I find that I learn new ideas and perspectives from my students each and every day... I have the pleasure of being a lifelong learner whilst at work!
I am excited to be a member of the RBIS community as the school's values very much mirror my own - the idea that we should strive to always aim higher, the importance that we place in being well-rounded and the opportunities that we provide for students to be leader.
Obviously, I am an avid reader, but I also enjoy the theatre and visual arts, as well as learning to knit. I enjoy playing netball and have a rediscovered love of badminton! I am looking forward to learning more about the culture of Thailand and the traditions of the country, all whilst enjoying the amazing food!
