Sheelagh Deegan

Teacher of EAL, Cambridge English Coordinator & 9B Form Tutor

I have experience teaching English, EAL, French and German over the last 20 years in Kenya, Indonesia, UK, Korea and the UAE. I have been here in Abu Dhabi for over 2 years with my husband who is also a teacher and my 2 children.


As an international school teacher I am very fond of travelling and experiencing new cultures. I am also a qualified Yoga teacher and when I am not teaching I also enjoy practising and attending classes whenever I can. I am also keen on Volleyball and coach the BIS Abu Dhabi boys and girls teams, as well as Basketball and Running.  Books and reading are also my passion when I am not enjoying time with my family.
