What does she like about SIS?
"I love the positive community feel. My son is in the Primary Wednesday Programme and I can't think of a better way to give him a sense of what it's like to be at school in the UK."
What is her Teaching style?
"I put a strong emphasis on confidence building, creativity and 'thinking outside of the box'. I like to mix and match traditional and inquiry-based learning techniques."
