Steven ZAMMIT

After completing my PGCE (Primary) I worked in London for three years. In 2002 I started my first international teaching post in Egypt. I then moved onto Malaysia where I was the Year 5 leader. I have held leadership roles in Nepal, Uganda (Deputy Head Primary) and now at BISC.
As I start my twenty-first year of teaching, it still amazes me what a privilege it is to teach children. As a teacher I believe in everyday excellence and that reaching your potential should be an expectation and a goal achievable by everyone.
