14 years' experience

I went straight into teaching from university, starting as a peripatetic brass teacher for North Lincolnshire Music Support Service. I left this position to become a professional musician which provided great opportunities to tour all over the world. My family and I settled in Hong Kong in 2013 to return to teaching and have been teaching at one of the largest international schools there since 2015. I am looking forward to helping to set up a new school and to develop a whole school curriculum, where continuous learning, through all key stages, can be developed. My family and I love to travel and the opportunity to move to such a vibrant, culturally historic place is something we are all excited about.
