I have many years experience of teaching in the UK as both a primary and a secondary teacher. My first appointment was in a junior school in Kingston upon Hull and, after 5 years and a position of responsibility there I left to have a family.
I returned to teaching 5 years later as a part time and supply teacher in the then ‘Humberside’ area until being offered a full-time position in a secondary school where I taught lower school mathematics and became head of department of Economics. My husband and I then applied and were fortunate enough to gain employment in Kuwait. Whilst there I worked as an infant and primary teacher for some years before being made the Head of Department of Humanities – this was a position which meant I was in charge of all economics related subjects as well as geography, social studies and history for pupils aged from 11 to 18. I enjoyed the responsibility and also took on the role of examinations officer for the school. Having lived in the Middle East for 16 years now, and having enjoyed the experience tremendously, I feel it is time to enjoy a new challenge and look forward very much to teaching pupils in a country with a tradition of culture and history.
