Chrissy is an Australian teacher who holds a Master of Teaching from the University of Melbourne and a Bachelor of International Relations from the Australian National University. She has taught at PYP schools in Australia and Italy, working as both a classroom teacher in Canberra and the PYP teacher-librarian at an international school in Milan. She also gained her Certificate in English Language Teaching and taught English here in Dublin.
While Chrissy was born and raised in Australia, her parents are from Malaysia and Poland. This helped foster her love of learning about different cultures and languages, inspiring her to travel and study Indonesian, Irish and Italian. It is also what attracted Chrissy to the IB as it promotes international mindedness.
In addition to languages, Chrissy enjoys photography, interior design and coffee. Chrissy is looking forward to joining ISD’s international community and meeting other ISD families who have also made Dublin their home!
