Ms Anna Joy Leaman
Head of English
Bachelor of Arts in American Studies, University of Manchester
Anna taught in the UK for five years, leaving Manchester for Kuala Lumpur in 2015 to pursue her dream of working in Asia. Anna came from a position as a Literacy and Language Coordinator within a large school and worked to improve standards of reading and writing among students as well as training staff in different subjects to effectively teach these skills. Anna has coordinated the EAL provision at her previous school and worked closely with pupils with a wide range of language needs and abilities. Anna has continued studying whilst teaching, recently qualifying as a SENCO and achieving a Level 5 Diploma in Performance Coaching, both of which are serving to further her understanding of how to cater most effectively for the range of pupils with whom she works. She loves exploring new cultures, reading lots of books and relaxing with yoga.
