I began my teaching career in Cape Town, South Africa working at an International school teaching Year 2 for two and a half years. I then moved to the British Virgin Islands and taught the Kindergarten class at the International School. After two enjoyable years, we moved on to Belgium where I worked at an International School in Brussels. In mid-2010 we moved back to Cape Town where I assisted in the setting up of a new 2-year-old preschool class. In 2011 I joined a Catholic girls school in Cape Town teaching the 4- 5-year-old class.
I have been fortunate to travel the world while doing what I enjoy. My family relocated to Mauritius in October 2016 and our second son was born last year. My eldest joined IPS this year, and I am excited about the opportunity to return to teaching after two years off with my boys.
