Mrs. Walker joined us in September 2018. She took a degree in Geography at Aberdeen University and then trained to teach the subject and Religious Education at Jordanhill College, Glasgow, from where she also obtained Diplomas in Education and in Special Educational Needs (SEN). Before moving to Morocco, Ms. Walker taught Psychology and Geography at a number of schools in Scotland, as well as working in a range of educational support services.
Later, in 2011, I received my degree in Musical Arts from the Technological University of Chile, to later work on different artistic and educational projects. In 2016 I came to Morocco to work as a music teacher at an international school in Morocco.
Throughout my musical development I have been part of different musical groups in different genres, such as: jazz, folk, rock, funk, rap, avant-garde, fusion music, world music, among others, sharing stage and rehearsals with high-level international musicians
After graduating from Durham University I decided to train to be a teacher of Geography. Twenty-four years later and I still want to teach Geography! I am very interested in how students learn and have completed two Masters degrees in Education, one with King's College London and the other with Durham University. I am currently completing a Doctorate in Education with Bristol University looking at teacher identity. I have worked in the UK, Malaysia and Hong Kong. I also set up and ran a school equestrian team that was so successful that we won two holidays to the UK for our team. I am very excited to share more experiential learning with the students of BISC.
Her core belief is that every child and young person matters and that students come to us with a wide range of needs and “gifts/talents” and must be supported and challenged to enable them to fulfil their own individual potential.
Mrs Sealey believes that learners benefit from a broad, creative curriculum which meets the needs of the individual - academically, physically, socially and emotionally. She is aware that when students are excited about something they have seen or experienced, they become inspired to achieve their best. The feeling of success and a nurturing, caring environment, based on Growth Mindset principles enable and empower students to grow and develop the skills, competencies, knowledge and understanding that they will need to self-actualise, make positive contributions to the communities in which they live and serve and ultimately to achieve their goals and dreams.
Mrs Sealey is a strong advocate of collaborative and partnership working with colleagues, parents and outside organisations and agencies and has taken a lead on building and developing successful networks, teams and working parties to achieve shared goals, making a positive difference to the lives and outcomes of young people and communities. She has seen first-hand the benefits of building and developing positive relationships, built on trust and mutual respect in order to create and develop professional teams, comprised of reflective practitioners who embrace the idea of life-long learning. In her experience teams need to be humanistic, affiliative and focussed on achievement, in order to fulfil their potential and ensure that they are enabling everyone to achieve their best and to have their “wings to fly”.
Having gained a degree in Social Sciences from Swansea University and then a PGCE qualification from Oxford, she went on to gain her Masters Degree in Educational Leadership and Management and is a qualified Executive Coach and Mentor. She is an advocate of life-long learning and has gained the NPQH, TEFL Diploma, Diploma in Child Psychology and a Diploma in School Counselling.
Mrs Sealey worked in the UK for over twenty years. She was an outstanding headteacher, lectured at local universities, worked for the National College of School Leadership and was an accredited Ofsted Inspector. She was also very involved in projects focussing not only on raising academic achievement within schools but also with those that improved levels of pastoral care, inclusivity and safeguarding.
In 2012 Mrs Sealey moved to Dubai with her husband and two youngest children. She has since worked in Uganda, Malaysia and India. She has held the position of Senior Leader in the schools in which she has worked, taking the lead on; Inclusion, Safeguarding, Professional Development, Teacher Training, School Improvement and Parent Engagement and Partnership. She is a COBIS Peer Accreditor and led the COBIS accreditation process in three schools over the past nine years.
She has also, during her time abroad, worked for two NGOs in Uganda and Cambodia, working as an Adviser to the Ministry and other Education Officers to support them in improving the quality of teaching and learning and Educational Planning, with a focus on improving inclusive practices, action research and use and analysis of data.
Mrs Sealey enjoys spending time as a family at their home in Totnes, Devon with their six children, partners and two grandchildren. Holidays are often spent exploring the moors or spending time at the seaside crabbing, swimming or exploring rockpools. She enjoys art and craft activities, but is still an amateur and is also learning to play the guitar and improve her French. She also loves cats!!! She enjoys travelling and exploring new places with her husband and is very interested in learning about different countries, cultures and traditions and becoming involved with local activities and meeting new people.
Mrs Sealey is very excited about joining the British International School Casablanca, with her husband, and feels privileged to be given the opportunity to establish a new Achievement Centre, taking the role of SENCO, leading a team and working with all members of the school community to support the school in developing its inclusive educational provision; SEND, ELL and Gifted and Talented. She has been a SENCO and set up and line managed Achievement Centres for over 25 years and is looking forward to meeting and getting to know students, parents and staff, using her knowledge, experience and expertise to support the school in achieving its vision and providing a“World Class” educational experience for all members of the BISC community.
As a keen sportsman he has already given students at BISC the opportunity to discover the joys of the game of cricket. He is also currently studying towards an MSc in Applied Economics from the University of Bath, and looks forward to introducing Economics as an A-level option at BISC next year.
Back in Morocco, she worked in AEFE Lyautey and Anatole France schools as a teacher of French and history. She then spent several years at the George Washington Academy as a Teacher and Head of the French Department. She also developed cultural awareness among students through trips abroad to have her students participate in the MUN-Foscamun conferences in Venice. She has mentored high school students at Emerging Leaders conferences in Richmond, US, where they were taught how to be confident as leaders.
For several years, she has organised various successful trips for her students to the south of France to explore Medieval history and architecture related to part of the curriculum.
Furthermore, she has also organised exchanges of American students with families in Morocco to discover the cultural side of Morocco while being immersed in French.
At BISC she is primarily responsible for teaching French to high school students and preparing them for the Cambridge exams with gusto. She coordinates the Primary and Secondary Arabic and French academic teams, focusing on the importance of these languages and how to practise them while adapting support and differentiation.
