Mrs. Catherine is passionate about environmental issues and believes that an international environment and the IB programmes provide a platform for the development of international mindedness in general. As a teacher, Mrs. Catherine looks for opportunities in which students can drive their own learning towards areas of personal interest based in real world contexts. At her last school, she organised an annual interdisciplinary fair. She believes that learning is a lifelong pursuit, which can take place in any context. In her spare time, Mrs. Catherine likes to practice yoga, play tennis, dive, travel and to try new things.
