« What we understand by education is allowing the child to develop » ‐ Maria Montessori
I am originally from Northern Ireland where I studied to become a teacher 30 years ago. Since then I have taught in London, Valencia, Bern, Montreux and Versoix. Most of my career has been spent teaching 3-6 year olds in bilingual schools but I have also taught children up to the age of 12.
I am married with a 20 year old daughter and have lived in Switzerland for almost 25 years. I enjoy walking, craft work and travelling.
I am excited to teach in a Montessori classroom which provides children with the opportunity to learn vital practical life skills and develop their fine motor skills, both of which are often overlooked in today’s world of technology.
