    I arrived in Doha three years ago and began teaching in Compass on the Gharaffa campus. I have been at the Rayyan Campus for two years now. After three years in Early Years, I am now excited about teaching in Year 1.

    I worked in a school in Dublin for six years before arriving to Doha. I have completed my Masters in Education, specialising in Early Years Education. Since arriving in Compass, I have attended the Early Years Middle Eastern conference in Dubai and the Middle Leaders course in London, both of which have been great experiences. I love to travel and living in Doha, the middle of the world, allows for many travel opportunities in the holidays.

    My country of origin is South Africa. I am married, my husband also being a teacher, and have two daughters, aged 25 and 21. We arrived in Doha in 2005, and have been living here for the past 11 years, after spending some time in the USA and UAE. In 2005, Qatar was in the process of rapid development as it attempted to popularize its global position. This exciting period in its history is what drew us to the country.

    This is my third year teaching at Compass International School. I completed a BA degree through the University of South Africa, as well as a certification in Teaching for a Multicultural Education. Currently, I am enrolled in a Master’s Degree program in Special Education Needs, through the University of Southern Queensland, Australia.

    I am qualified school teacher, specializing in Primary/Junior years. I obtained my teaching qualification in Canada, but have since taught overseas in South Korea and South America. At home, I had wonderful experiences teaching students, generally in key stage two. I also thoroughly enjoyed my time overseas, teaching students in various year groups.

     

    I decided to come to Compass International School in Qatar because I love teaching abroad and learning about new cultures. I have heard wonderful things about others experiences here in Doha and figured this would be perfect opportunity for me to explore both my love for teaching and traveling.

    Year 3 Teacher and Milepost 2 & 3 Leader

    Liam Patton

    I am from the North of Scotland and I studied Petroleum Geology before postgraduate teacher training in Glasgow and I taught in Aberdeen, Scotland for 5 years.  I worked in the oil exploration industry and from this I wanted to share my interest in Science with my pupils.  In my last 2 years in Aberdeen, I was heavily involved with raising the profile of Science teaching within my school and in a city-wide capacity.

    I was very keen to extend my professional development through teaching internationally and my family and I wanted to experience living in a different culture.

    I arrived in Doha in 2010 as I wanted to be closer to my husband who works in the Middle East. I came to Compass as I love teaching the IPC and after a successful interview felt that it was going to be a great place to work - which it is!

    I originally come from North Devon in the UK and I am married with a very busy and lively 2 year old called Alex.
