Francesca is an English teacher who grew up in Somerset in the South West of England. She studied English Literature at the University of Exeter and achieved a 1st class degree. After graduating, Francesca taught English as a foreign language in a private school in Italy where she developed her love for teaching. After she returned to the UK she taught at Millfield Prep School in Glastonbury for 4 years. She completed her PGCE with Bath Spa University whilst teaching, a challenging yet rewarding experience. She loves teaching English and helping her students to find a love of reading, writing and discussing literature. She is excited to work with the students at ISPH to help them find their passions.
Outside of teaching, Francesca enjoys travelling, reading, dancing, swimming, hiking and just generally being outdoors! This is her first international teaching post and she is thoroughly looking forward to meeting everyone at ISPH as well as exploring Vietnam.
