Emily Geldard


Emily Geldard has nine years of teaching experience in secondary schools in the UK and Switzerland. Originally a student of Geography, she gained her BSc degree at Southampton University and then completed her PGCE at Exeter University. In more recent years, she has relished the opportunity to teach English Language and Literature and enjoys finding ways to relate texts to the students’ own lives and encourage open-minded and independent thinking.

Emily is also an Accompagnateur en Montagne (Mountain leader) and passionate about encouraging students to learn more about themselves and the world through sport and the natural environment. She has lived in the French Alps for a decade now and enjoys mountain sports, yoga and cooking in her free time.
