Carla has been a passionate advocate for the Primary Years Programme since she was first introduced to it because it capitalizes on children’s natural curiosity towards learning and because it focuses on the development of the whole child. Some of her proudest moments in teaching have been watching former students work their way through the various year levels to graduate with the I.B. Diploma. Carla’s hobbies outside school include soccer, tap dancing, listening to music and traveling. She was fortunate to combine two of those passions when she represented the Bahamian National Soccer Team in international tournaments in the Dominican Republic, Bermuda and the U.S.A.
Since she began teaching at The Codrington School, she has taught PYP3 for three years, and then began teaching PYP8. Her favorite things about living in Barbados are the beaches, the food, the music, and being a part of both local and international communities. In her free time, she enjoys working out, reading, being outdoors, traveling, and teaching Zumba classes to adults and children.
Liz has three children, including a son in the PYP Programme at Codrington, so a lot of her spare time is family focussed. She is loving her time in Barbados, and making the most of the opportunity to be in, on and near the ocean. It’s just a bit more inviting than the North Sea!
Having a deep passion for teaching, she is passionate about technology and computer programming. In her spare time she enjoys practicing and gaining more knowledge on coding, reading and trying new adventures.
