Hi! I'm Fiona. It's fair to say that I've taken my love of education and travelling, personally: on my first move overseas (in 2004) I met and married a teacher, and together we have embraced the travelling/educating itch, teaching in five continents and having two kids in two different countries.
A few years ago I took on the role of a teaching and learning coach, working with all faculty Pre-K through 12 in an International School. I found myself completely changing my vision of what learning should be, spurred by the teachers I worked with who were thirsty for more - more for their students, more for themselves, more for their profession. I'm now at another school, building the role from the ground - up.
Finding an identity within coaching is a ride: highs, lows, and it has its own seasons during each school year. While a little more comfortable these days, I still find myself with many questions to ask about how best to support teachers and impact student learning in a way that is caring, respectful and fulfilling.
I try my best to use my own photos - I often find metaphors in the world around me!
