Having completed my degree in Early Childhood Education in the UK, I took up the post of Nursery Teacher at our sister school in Shanghai. After a successful post in Shanghai, I joined our partner school in Warsaw, Poland, as a Nursery Teacher and Early Years Coordinator. This role gave me a greater understanding of how children learn through the different stages, whilst allowing me to develop my leadership skills.
After my time in Warsaw, I was ready for a new challenge and potential opportunities to gain additional skills enabling me to enhance my knowledge of teaching and learning.
I took on the role of Reception Teacher and High Performance Learning Leader at another Nord Anglia Education School, The British School of Guangzhou. This allowed me the opportunity to continue to develop independent, child-centred learning, taking this concept through with our Year 1 students. I believe in children using the outdoor areas as part of their learning experience, using real life objects to discover and become inquisitive learners. It is important not to forget the significance of transition in these early stages of development, allowing the children to feel safe and secure when starting a new year group or when starting a new school, sometimes in a completely new country.
I am looking forward to utilising the skills learnt at our other Nord Anglia Education Schools to enhance the provision and learning of our school in Dubai. Over the years I have developed a passion for teaching and I am constantly trying to do what’s best for our future leaders. I look forward to a new and exciting challenge at NAS Dubai.
I continue to enjoy travelling the globe in search of exciting experiences. I really like playing golf, even though I am nowhere near as good as I would like to be. I can now make a very simple loaf of bread after many baking disasters.
