Learning Support


EDUCATION: Loreto Convent of Port Louis, Montessori Teaching Diploma with Distinction, and courses at the Bell Teacher Training Institute, Saffron Walden.



My career began 25 years ago under the tutelage of the IPS founder, in what was the international section of Ecole du Nord. Following two decades in Year Three, I mentored beginning teachers in my year group, one of whom was a former student. Throughout the years, I have also introduced and organised the Diwali festivities at the school.

I transitioned to my role as Learning Support Teacher, where I have been given the opportunity to extend my reach and help children across all levels. Every day is different, and I find myself constantly learning, and coming up with new strategies to optimise the use of sensory learning in my work. The back and forth between the class and Learning Support teachers, the coordinator during the weekly PYP planning meetings provide an insight on how learning is taking place in the classroom.
Working here has been, and continues to be, a rewarding experience, and I look forward to many such years to come.
