I was born in Jacksonville in the state of Florida, United States Of America. I graduated from University Of North Florida with a BA in Education. I then spent 2 years teaching at a middle school in Jacksonville before I moved abroad to start my career in international teaching.
After that brief period in the US teaching, the majority of my career has been in international schools in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia: Pachuca, Mexico, Ankara Turkey, Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, Lusaka, Zambia and Beijing, China. I have been in Pastoral leadership for 15 years, including Head of Computer Science and Cambridge Exams officer for 5 years.
I feel my role as a teacher is to create a great working environment for students of all abilities in Computer Science and to foster a love of learning; equipping students to be the best they can be academically and pastorally.
Outside of school I have a variety of interests in the culinary arts being a trained chef, a love of playing darts and traveling. I am delighted to be here in this wonderful capital city of Prague in my second international, European post. I am looking forward to meeting all the students, colleagues and the school community and experiencing all the opportunities that life here will bring both professionally and personally at Park Lane.
