Although I have a strong social science educational background, having studied history, politics, economics and international relations, I eventually diversified my career into teaching. This, as a second language English specialist. The majority of my teaching career has been in Kazakhstan since the early 2000’s where I worked in some highly respected language schools and universities before joining the English Department in Haileybury Almaty in 2009. In between this, I also had a two year teaching stint in London. Additionally, I have worked in over 20 UK summer school courses for children from all around the world, many of which have been in some of the UK’s most prestigious schools, such as: Oundle, Bloxham, Cobham Hall, Wellington, Rugby, Woldingham and Radley College to name but a few. On most of these courses, I have held senior positions such as Welfare Director, Sports and Social Director, Director of Studies and also lead Course Director. I have proudly been in Haileybury Astana since the school opened in August 2011.
