Learning Support Teacher/Coordinator

Learning Support Coordinator

British

Education: A Bachelor of Science (Geography), a PGCE (Geography and SEN) and a Masters in Disaster Managment and Sustainable Development.

I was born in Gibraltar and I went to university in the UK.

My love of Geography and my chosen career have served me well as I have been able to work and travel. I have taught in Jamaica, United Kingdom, South Korea, Morocco, Cayman Islands, South Africa, my home country Gibraltar, and now Mauritius.

Through my experience in many schools, I developed a passion for working with students who have learning barriers. Hence my enthusiasm for being the Learning Support Coordinator here at IPS. It is my belief that students need an advocate who will guide them to reach their full potential. Working in a team with colleagues who share the same beliefs makes coming to work a joy!
