Hello - 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've made a life scratching 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, and my ideas and thoughts of coaching continues to grow, moulded by context, people, and new ideas.
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.
