"My CV describes my roles as curriculum coordinator, department head, principal and now Head of UWCSEA Dover Campus. However, what a CV misses are those moments when you realise your efforts have positively impacted a student. Teachers and leaders in education thrive in an environment where they are able to make a difference. UWCSEA has made that possible for me."
