I was born in Liverpool but grew up in St. Helens, Merseyside in the North West of England. St. Helens is a little different to Liverpool because the main sport is Rugby League, not football. Where Liverpool is famous for its booming port, St. Helens is famous for making glass.
Before attending university, I worked as a Joiner, a Landscape Gardener and a Football Coach for Bolton Wanderers Football Club. I then attended Liverpool Hope University and graduated with a BA in English Language and Education before gaining my Teaching Qualification in Lancashire.
My teaching career started in my hometown teaching Reception. I then taught Year 1 for a year in London before moving to Qatar where I taught Year1, 2 and 4 for three years at a British curriculum school.
My main interests and hobbies are Football, Physiology, Sport and History with minor interests in Philosophy and Politics. When I am not teaching, I like to travel.
My mother and father and my younger brother and sister all live in or close to where I grew up. My sister just gave birth to my niece who is the first great-grandchild of the family.
My aim at Oryx School is to perpetually improve myself as a teacher and to share my experience and my qualities with both the children and staff at OIS.
