Where have you worked before joining Kennedy House?

Most recently at Lusaka International Community School (Zambia). 


Why did you choose teaching as a career and what do you try to instill in your pupils?

Personally, I think that teaching chose me, however my A-level Bio teacher suggested I should become a teacher after watching me help others in class.  I try to instill curiosity and a passion for the subject.   


Apart from your teaching role, what else do you get involved with at the school?

Outside of Science, you will find me at the pool or almost any sporting activity. 


In your opinion, what makes Kennedy House special?

Hard to narrow that down to just one aspect!  I suppose the size; you find it hard to have this positive atmosphere in large schools.  


Who or what inspires you?

My parents inspire me, knowing what sacrifices they have made for me. 


Tell us something that not a lot of people know about you.

I am ambidextrous.
