"I feel families and young learners should be able to make guided choices about taking advantage of the different ways of learning the world has to offer today."
What are your professional qualifications/accreditations?
PGCE, Masters, NPQSL
Why did you decide to go into teaching?
I’ve always felt that teaching was my calling, I enjoy watching students thrive and learn. There is nothing more rewarding then when watching that moment when it all makes sense to the student and they can successfully apply their learning.
What is it that you love about teaching?
Enabling students to academically achieve and reach their potential but rooted in a sense of pride at watching their hard work.
What was your teaching experience before joining King's InterHigh?
I have taught both in the UK and Middle East as a Senior Leader overseeing large remits to include assessment, teaching and learning and school improvement projects.
What inspired you to make the change to teaching at an online school?
I believe it is the way forward for many families and in many respects I feel families and young learners should be able to make guided choices about taking advantage of the different ways of learning the world has to offer today. Education is finally catching up to the IT skills employers are looking for and King’s InterHigh is at the cutting edge of offering these learning opportunities at all key stages.
How is teaching with King's InterHigh different to teaching at a bricks and mortar school?
In many ways it isn’t. we still offer the educational support, guidance and focus on attainment as any other school but with the flexibility, resource and personal approach that sets us apart by using online learning.
What is the best feature of King's InterHigh for you as a teacher?
The shared vision amongst students and staff for success rooted in the care that we have as a learning community.
How does the King's InterHigh online platform enrich lessons for both you and the students?
Technology allows us to access online platforms through research, writing skills and up to date use of learning tools. Communication is efficient and allows students to actively engage in lessons. Students never miss out as lessons are recorded and they are able to catch up so learning gaps are filled.
