Grace Sanford

Swimming Coordinator
Teacher of SEN

My name is Grace Sanford and I am the Primary School SEN teacher. I am also the swimming coordinator for the whole school. I was born in Uganda and grew up in Fort Portal, in the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains.

I am a qualified Early Years and Primary school teacher, and also trained in Montessori methodology. I have experience teaching in international schools around Africa. I have lived and worked in countries such as Uganda, Tanzania, Mozambique and Zambia. I have also travelled in Kenya, Malawi, Swaziland, South Africa and the UK.

My husband Dale is the Head of Science here at MIS, and our children attend school here as well. I love travelling, cooking and learning new languages. I speak reasonable Swahili and Portuguese. However, my biggest passion is swimming.
