Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever.

Mahatma Gandhi. (Liz’s favourite quote)

Liz has been in the teaching professional for forty-two years and is passionate about helping children to understand the world around them and to develop a love of learning.  She has been at Phoenix International School for two years and enjoys the sense of community and close-knit support.  Liz’s proudest educational achievement was teaching a class who all achieved A* and A grades.  Privately walking down the Grand Canyon takes some beating!  Liz particularly likes working in a small school because she feels you can get to fully understand the needs of each student and individually support them in their learning.
