I am currently teaching in Year 6 at NAS Dubai and happy to be part of a fantastic team. I have lived in Dubai for 8 years now and I still absolutely love it!
Encouraging creativity is an intrinsic aspect of my teaching style. Within the classroom environment, I feel it is important to create a welcoming, stimulating and motivating atmosphere. I always try to inspire the children to identify with their own way of learning, giving them the correct tools to reach their full potential. It is always great to see their ‘happy face’ when they have achieved something that they perhaps did not think was possible.
My passion lies with ICT and technology. I love helping the children to use this across the curriculum, motivating them to succeed and providing them with an enjoyable learning experience. I have taken on various additional roles throughout my career, including school website design, as well as whole school ICT coordinator.
When I am not at school, I like to keep busy by socialising with friends, entertaining, cooking and travelling to new places. Of course, I also love to spend time enjoying the Dubai sunshine, which is just a little bit different to what I was used to in Dundee!
