Date you joined the School
What do you do at Bethany?
I am the Head of Computer Science but I will also be teaching Science and DT as well!
What did you do before you came to Bethany?
I taught at Maidstone Grammar School For Girls, which is where I started my teaching career.
What is your favourite novel/music/artist/film and why?
Very hard to answer! Regarding music, I like the songs of the 80s but musicals is a guilty pleasure. However, my favourite artist/band is Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons – a 60s band! Warning; you will often find me singing at every opportunity.
I do like SciFi and Adventure films but I am more Star Trek than Star Wars (there is a difference).
What is your favourite quotation and why?
“Where there is a will, there is a way”. This is my favourite quote because no matter how difficult the challenge ahead is, there is always a way to overcome it.
What was your favourite subject at school and why?
Obviously, I absolutely enjoyed ICT (back when it was around) because I enjoyed using technology. However, my favourite subject would be music as I had a great teacher, a fantastic department and lots of trips!
Why do you like working at Bethany?
Bethany has a great sense of community and a kindness and willingness to help others. The area around the school is stunning to look at and work in.
What interests do you have outside Bethany?
I like to go off on adventures at every opportunity. I like going out for walks and hikes around the countryside. I like using and learning new technology. I like to sing and play music as well.
What is your favourite childhood memory?
Singing and performing at Rochester Cathedral when I was at school; it’s a very special place for me.
What is your favourite colour and why?
Blue – when I was at I was part of a House which had the blue colour and had the same colour in my last school. It seems to follow me!
If you were not doing what you are doing now, what would you like to do?
I would love to go travelling further afield. I was fortunate enough to go backpacking around Europe a few years ago but I would like to see more of the world!
