Having graduated from The University of Aberdeen with a MA (hons) in Primary Education in 2015, I worked in Elgin, Scotland, for a year working with a composite Year 2/3 class. During my time at University, I undertook a series of placements gaining valuable teaching experience with children from Year 2 to year 6. Having gained my initial qualification in June of 2015, I embarked on completeing my Masters Degree and am currently researching the benefits and features of a reflective practitioner which will develop the skills I can bring to the classroom. The experiences I have had in Scotland have been fantastic and the next step for me was to experience a new curriculum and learn from other practioners from around the world. 

I am joining NAISAK this year as a Year 2 teacher and will bring the knowledge and skills I have developed in Scotland to support the learning my class. Having experienced learning and teaching in rural and city settings, working in Qatar will be a new, but exciting prospect for me to further my professional development.

Growing up as the oldest of four boys has helped me to become a competitive, responsible and determined person. I am a highly motivated individual and am focused on fulfilling goals and celebrating achievements. Encouraging children to do the same is an ever-present component of my classroom. I joined NAISAK because it is a school that strives for excellence alongside celebrating achievements. This aim develops confident learners to become global citizens and promotes children taking responsibility for supporting and respecting their peers in their community.

If you walked into my classroom, you would see a student-led, engaging environment. I plan to further build student’s confidence through Building Learning Power techniques and encourage children to view themselves through positive lenses and develop a Growth Mindset. My aim this year, as it is and will be every year, is to promote and develop resilient, respectful and reflective learners. These are integral components needed to be a successful learner.

Working with parents is essential for ensuring children both succeed and enjoy their time at school. I am always keen to discuss a child’s learning and progress with parents and my door is always open for parents to discuss this with me. I understand that parents cannot always come in for meetings due to busy schedules, so I am happy to give parents a telephone call if this is more convenient if you contact the school. Regular discussion should not just be about concerns, but achievements and success children have out with the school. I look forward to meeting and hearing from you all in September.
