Description: I have taught Years 4, 5 and 6 in Key Stage 2. During my career, I have acted as a year leader and mentor to trainee teachers. This is my fifth-year teaching at Renaissance. This current academic year I am teaching Year 6. I had taught in England for 4 years before I came to Renaissance International School Saigon. I have been fortunate to teach a wide range of ability students and I am sensitive to the individual needs of all children. I believe that children should participate in all stages of their learning. My classroom is a platform for children to share their talents and skills in all areas of the curriculum. During my time at Renaissance, I have been lucky to coach the U11 Netball team for 2 years. Hopefully, this year I will also be able to do the same.
