Before joining UWCSEA, Cathy has been privileged to have a variety of teaching and leadership experiences, both in terms of location and educational levels. She has worked with students in China, New Zealand, South Africa and England, at middle school, high school and at tertiary level, and in international, public and private schools.
A Geographer and English teacher, Cathy has also enjoyed working with students as they develop leadership skills through a range of service activities, on field trips and excursions and in activities such as Model United Nations (MUN), the publishing of the year book, 'Roots and Shoot's and student leadership groups.
Travel and photography are her favourite holiday pastimes, and she hopes to visit Antarctica when someone works out how to get there cheaply, without being seasick.
When two students approached us three years ago about initiating an East Campus festival celebrating our panorama of cultures, many ideas were floated as to what we might do, and what students might take from such a festival.
