Sally joined the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Board of Governors as an ex officio member between 2009 and 2010, and was invited to join the Board as an independent member in April 2011.
She has held roles on the IB Regional Council for Asia-Pacific, and the Heads Council, which she chaired from November 2009 until December 2010. She has recently joined the International Baccalaureate® Education Network (IBEN) as a workshop leader.
Now the founding head of KIS International School in Bangkok, Thailand, Sally is originally from the UK. She started her career in primary education in London, and then moved to Washington International School, Washington DC, where she was introduced to the IB.
Sally has taught in three IB programmes: first as a science teacher in the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP), and currently as a theory of knowledge (TOK) teacher in the Diploma Programme (DP).
She has watched students excel in IB programmes, whose strong emphasis on inquiry helps students develop a real love of learning. Both of Sally’s children went through all three of the IB programmes, and are DP graduates.
Sally is involved with international education in Thailand, assisting the International Schools Association of Thailand (ISAT), where she has been a committee member for several years. She is also a committee member for the Professional Women's Group, a sub-committee of the British Chamber of Commerce Thailand (BCCT), which organizes regular networking events and presentations for professional women in Bangkok.
