I am a member of the Religious Studies and Philosophy department. Additionally, I hold the role of Housemistress at Ridley and oversee the coordination of the weekend trip programme. I am embarking on my eighth academic year at King Edward’s.
I hail from Northern Ireland originally. Over the years, I’ve resided in various corners of the globe and have been residing in England for approximately a decade.
The genuine and inherent diversity at King Edward’s is something I truly appreciate; it’s not just a trendy term here, but a fundamental aspect ingrained in every sense of the word.
Many times, the candid and unexpected remarks from teenagers have left me in fits of laughter. Their unique perspectives and sense of humour can be incredibly entertaining. Accents can certainly lead to some entertaining misunderstandings. The marriage “voles” certainly bring a charming twist to the concept of marriage vows.
Striking the right balance between working hard and playing hard is essential. Finding contentment in every season of life is equally important.
I share a great admiration for Queen Elizabeth I. Her position and influence in a predominantly male-dominated world have always fascinated me. I find her policy of appeasement, navigating the varying degrees of church reform amidst the aftermath of Henry VIII’s tumultuous reign, particularly impressive.
The prospect of having as many of our family and friends together in one place is incredibly exciting. We feel truly blessed by the outpouring of love and are deeply honoured that people from at least eight different countries will be joining us in celebration. While I hope to avoid any clumsy mishaps, should I happen to stumble, it might just become a shared moment for everyone to bond over!
