Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn.’

Ms Eccleshall has recently moved to the island to start work at Baleares International as the Year 5 (Whales) class teacher. After a career in London in hotels as a Catering and Conference Manager , she felt this was not where her future lay. With two small children at home , she retrained as a primary teacher and now has over twenty years’ experience working in schools in the UK and on the east coast of the USA. She uses this range of experiences to develop herself as a teaching professional and to ensure her classroom is a positive learning environment for all students. She believes in bringing education alive in the classroom and to support students to become confident and successful individuals. In any spare time she enjoys hiking, the beach, cooking and the cinema.

Her belief in education and teaching is summarised in the quote by Benjamin Franklin Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn.’
