Jessica Thornton

I graduated from Waikato University in New Zealand with a Bachelor of Teaching, specialising in Physical Education. I have experience teaching Early Years and Primary both as a classroom and a Physical Education teacher.

I am now in my eighth year of international teaching in Dubai. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and believe it is important to encourage children to develop life-long skills through Physical Education. This includes knowledge of how to be healthy, an enthusiasm to keep fit and to take part in sports outside school. As I live myself, I promote participation in sport to be fun, a place where new friends can be made and great challenge faced while keeping active.

Being from the beautiful New Zealand I enjoy the outdoors and sports. I play team sports touch, netball and rugby and like to run to keep fit. I have a two year old boy and therefore enjoy spending time on the weekends outside at the beach, by the pool and in the parks.
