I have taught throughout the primary age range during my 20 years of teaching. In my last school I was primary sports co-ordinator responsible for organising sports events across 6 local schools. Also I was member of the ICT team, which was great as I got to play with the new gadgets before anyone else!
I took the decision to join BIS Abu Dhabi because the ethos of the school is very similar to my own. The school has a very personalised approach to teaching which encourages all children to achieve the best they can by equipping them with the skills to tackle any problem in or out of the classroom.
I love to travel and have travelled across Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. I enjoy finding out about different cultures and I enjoy planning all the new and exciting places I have the fortunate opportunity to go and visit. I am really enjoying living in a new country which I have never done before. I am a big sports fan and now that I am older I am a little less competitive and play a lot more for fun. I particularly enjoy watching football and support my local team. I like to watch all of the big sporting events and I am hoping to get a chance to see the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix and the Dubai Desert classic to name just two.
