I teach to inspire. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing students achieve something they thought they never could. I strongly believe it is a young persons’ right to express themselves. Learning can help children to develop a strong sense of awareness and a healthy sense of self-esteem. I am interested in the arts. Painting is my passion, although I also enjoy music and drama. My other interests include attempting to keep fit. Dancing is my favourite way of doing this but wouldn’t say that I am any good at it. I love to cook and combine my social life with food by hosting lots of dinner parties. I enjoy working at The International School of Moscow as I feel part of a community. I enjoy watching the school grow and look forward to how it will continue to develop in the future.
