Meet our Upper-Intermediate teacher – Jamie aka “American Sweetheart” 🤩

What I love about our school is our teachers. They are supportive, smart, funny and, simply, great 🎓


We asked Jamie several questions to learn more about her personality and background. I bet you will be surprised 😉

Languages you can speak: I can speak Spanish, Egyptian, Arabic and French.

I always wanted to be a zookeeper or vet.

Brisbane’s best kept secret is the hiking trails nearby.

I’ll bet you didn’t know that I am from Wisconsin.

At 11 pm on Saturday, you’ ll find me with Brazilians.

At 8 am on Sunday, you will find me asleep.

My dream holiday destination is anywhere warm.

The best restaurant in Brisbane is my house.
