Miss Michelle Clough | Year 4 Teacher

After graduating with a BA (Hons) Primary Education with English Literature, I embarked on my exciting teaching career. It all began by teaching in two primary schools based in Liverpool. During this time, I had the opportunity to work with children from a range of backgrounds. These invaluable experiences shaped my inclusive teaching philosophy that values cultural diversity and encourages children to embrace their unique individualities.

From there I embraced the challenge of teaching the English National Curriculum in Shanghai and more recently in Abu Dhabi. During my time as a founding staff member in Shanghai, I shaped the school ethos and helped lay the foundations for success. I extended my professional development in Abu Dhabi by joining the senior middle leadership team as an Associate Assistant Principal. Leading the KS2 team in all aspects of teaching and learning, attendance, assessment and attainment. Having a strong global outlook I am keen to develop my skills and I am looking forward to bringing my experience to The British School Lisbon and ultimately inspiring young minds to become curious, ambitious and successful.

About Michelle

Outside of school life, I am an adventurous person who has a passion for travel and a drive to fully immerse myself into a culture different to my own. I spend most of my holidays exploring and gaining different perspectives all around the world.

With a passion for English Literature, you will often find me immersed in a book or writing poetry. Healthy living is also an important aspect to my life, so if I haven’t got my backpack on, I’ll be cooking healthy meals, attending a yoga class or immersing myself in a nature trail run.
