“... you are never too small to make a difference.”

Every day I remind myself how lucky I am: lucky to have friends and family, lucky to live on such a beautiful island and most of all lucky to do a job that I love.

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to teach and help children become happy and well-rounded individuals with a ‘can do’ attitude.

As a young adult, I gained the Queen's Guide award and later spent time working with children in Norway. After qualifying with a Bachelor of Education (Honours) degree, I began my career teaching in the south of England. However, my time spent abroad, exploring a new country and experiencing different cultures inspired me to look for work in a more international environment. Since then, I have enjoyed working at outstanding schools on mainland Spain as well as here in Mallorca

Having worked at Baleares International College for six years, I am delighted to be part of the leadership team under the inspirational guidance of Ms Colwell. I feel privileged to be working with and leading such caring and dedicated members of staff. As you are aware, this week Ms Compton takes her maternity leave to start her new family and I am excited to begin my new role as acting Head of Primary.

In my leisure time, I love to travel, cycle, snorkel and scuba dive. Also, I am passionate about caring for the environment and have been a vegetarian for most of my life. I believe that children are the future and therefore it’s vital that we teach them how to protect their environment, be kind to each other, and make decisions that benefit the world as a whole.

As Greta Thunberg said in her famous Climate Summit speech “... you are never too small to make a difference.”
