Deputy Head of Primary

Nord Anglia International School Al Khor (NAISAK) is a truly unique school to be a part of and I feel genuinely grateful to come to work every day. Our school represents a vibrant local community with students from a diverse range of backgrounds and this creates a fantastic community feel that every visitor commends us on.  



I have been at NAISAK for over 2 years and during that time I have taught across a range of year groups whilst holding several Year Leader, Curriculum Leader, Lead Teacher and Mentoring roles. Originally from London, I graduated in 2010 from The University of Liverpool where I studied BA (Hons) Geography. I went on to complete my Postgraduate Certificate of Education in 2013 at St Marys University, Twickenham and worked as a primary teacher in Hounslow, West London. After receiving Qualified Teacher Status I joined Nord Anglia Education in 2014 and took up a primary teacher post at NAISAK. I have recently completed the Nord Anglia Middle Leadership Program and I am currently studying for my MA in Applied Educational Leadership and Management with University College London (UCL) and The Institute of Education, London.

Teaching internationally has many positives, personally it has allowed me to work in a school that matches my ambitious educational philosophy. Providing students from a diverse range of backgrounds to come together and receive outstanding teaching and educational opportunities, not only in academics but in sports, the arts and life experiences. At NAISAK we do just that.

In my spare time I enjoy travelling which is one of the many benefits of living in the Middle East. I am also a keen sportsman, and particularly enjoy Golf, Swimming, Cycling and Running.
