Having studied English and Education at Newcastle University, I knew that teaching was for me. However, I did have a career before attending university. I am a qualified dance teacher and have danced since the age of two. I performed on stage, TV and taught at a large dance school in Newcastle Upon Tyne, as well being a School Sports Coordinator in Dance in 6 large secondary schools in Durham. I did my teacher training at the Academy at Shotton Hall and continued teaching there and progressing until I came to Doha with my husband and son. As a teaching school, I had the opportunity to train other aspiring teachers and mentor NQTs on their journey in teaching, which was a very rewarding experience.
I would like to provide all students with the same opportunities to achieve outstanding results, but also bring excitement and a passion for English to the classroom.
My favourite quote is: "Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success." - Henry Ford
Elvis Presley once said, "Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine.” For me, being ambitious is having the courage and determination to work hard and achieve your dreams.
