What is your happy space?
When I’m on an aeroplane, travelling somewhere new. I love the anticipation of what I will find, where I will go and who I will meet.

I love Formula 1. I am unbelievably excited about going to the last Malaysian Grand Prix!

How and why did you get into the teaching profession?
I really enjoyed learning new things and wanted to share this passion for learning amongst others. I wanted to make a difference to the lives of young people and see them grow, learn and flourish.

What is the greatest thing of being a teacher?
Seeing young people persevere, even when something is tough, and sharing their sense of accomplishment in the end.

Complete the sentence: I wish…that I all young people, across the world, were happy, successful and safe.
