I worked there initially as a Teacher of Art, then as Head of Pastoral Care and eventually as Deputy Head of Secondary, Pastoral.
I have brought this wealth of experience with me to NAS Dubai offering and developing a creative, expressive and collaborative Art Department here at NAS.
I am passionate about the arts and believe that they are an essential part of the curriculum in schools. Not only do students gain valuable skills and experiences through creating different pieces of art, their creativity and creative thinking skills are challenged, solving problems and design issues, working individually and as part of a team, learning vital skills that our children need in this ever evolving and changing world. Many children gain a lot of confidence through creative activities and relish the chance to express themselves and experiment with their ideas and personal expressions.
In my spare time I enjoy visiting galleries, gathering new ideas for my personal work and for school projects.
