Rachel Fathers

Year 4 Teacher

I have been teaching primary in Doha for seven years and have also taught in the UK and Oman. Before studying for my primary teaching qualification (PGCE), I worked as a project manager for a large educational charity in the UK. I also taught English as an Additional Language. This year I will be teaching Year 3 and leading our wonderfully talented Year 3 and Year 4 teachers at Gharaffa Campus.



 I live with my husband Nick here in Doha. We have four children, Josie, James, Lucy and Alice, aged between 17 and 23. They have all been educated internationally.
I would like the children in my care to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to succeed in the modern world.
In my experience, most children whatever their personal circumstances settle very quickly and flourish at our school because is it such a warm, nurturing learning environment. This makes Compass International School a very special place.
“We are our choices”:   Jean Paul Sartre

When I am not teaching, I enjoy travelling, cooking and keeping fit. I really love eating out and there are so many restaurants to choose from in Doha!
