Ms Lawrence is from the UK and holds a degree in Biology from Oxford Brookes University. She gained a PGCE in Secondary Biology and General Science from York University before embarking on her first teaching post in a secondary school in Botswana. Her next international move was to Brunei where her husband taught English while she took time off to be with her two young children. After returning to the UK and teaching her daughter for a year, she saw the light and decided Primary education was what she loved. After gaining a Certificate in Primary Education, she taught at independent schools in the UK and abroad including 12 years at Woodbridge School in Suffolk UK where she also took on management roles including subject leader in several subjects and Director of Studies. Other international teaching posts have included Japan, Cairo, Malaysia and Oman. The past year has been spent teaching at Ipswich Prep School in the UK, but now she is very much looking forward to teaching at BISL and moving to lovely Slovenia.
In her spare time, Mrs Lawrence enjoys hiking, exploring the outdoors, reading, swimming and gardening, but her great passion is travelling, so moving to the region will bring many areas of Slovenia, as well as other countries, into range for easy exploration.
