Following the completion of my training year, I worked in Clacton, Essex. My role within the school progressed from NQT mentor, Literacy Across the Curriculum Lead, Aspirant AST and Assistant Head of English and Literacy. After four years, I moved schools to Colchester, Essex where I was quickly promoted to Assistant Head of English. I have taught, English Literature and Language and Media studies to KS3, 4 and 5.
My husband has previously worked in Dubai and loved his time in the UAE (as I did visiting him), so it became our aim to return. We recently had a little boy and decided that Abu Dhabi would be a fantastic place for him to learn and grow up. It is a new and exciting adventure.
We have done lots of travelling across Europe, Japan and North America and we love trying new foods and learning about diverse cultures. We enjoy water sports including sailing and scuba diving, so we look forward to the new activities that the UAE will offer.
