"Over the past 16 years I have enjoyed my various roles in international education. I have been very fortunate to be able to explore the world while doing what I love! In the past I have been afforded the opportunity to develop my leadership skills as a teacher, curriculum coordinator, member of various parent and staff leadership teams and am now back in the classroom doing what I love the most....having fun with my students. LINKS has re-invigorated my love of leadership and collaboration with my colleagues. It is my intention that with my prior experience and the renewed energy that LINKS has provided I will continue to lead and further my career by expanding my leadership roles."

"Now into my 17th year of working within the English School’s Foundation, I feel that Hong Kong is very much my home. I’ve taught in Years 3-6 and am currently Year 4 Leader at Kowloon Junior School. Having once been a co-ordinator of maths for 6 years I was able to develop my passion for maths and help implement a new curriculum within our school. I gave up my leadership role to start a family and have found that carrying out our agency project into differentiation strategies in number has re-kindled that passion. Working alongside colleagues, observing lessons, reflecting on my own practice and sharing professional dialogue have been a truly rewarding experience.
The LINKS course presents a range of strategies and skills that can be readily applied to the everyday complexities of having a leadership role within a school. I would highly recommend it."
