FS1 Nursery Teacher

Ms Shaw graduated from Edge hill University in 2008 with a BA hons degree in Primary Education.

I graduated from Edge Hill University in 2008 with a BA hons degree in Primary Education. Following graduation, I taught in different schools in Manchester. This was mainly in early years. I then moved to Qatar and taught there for 3 years in an International School teaching Nursery. I then decided to move to Abu Dhabi and taught Reception in an American school. This gave me great experience with another curriculum but decided to move to BIS Abu Dhabi to be back working with the British curriculum and in an outstanding school.

I am passionate about travelling. I have visited over 30 countries and can’t wait to explore more. So far, my favourite is south east Asia. I love to immerse myself in new cultures and traditions. I enjoy trying new things and like to keep myself busy. I enjoy going to the beach, swimming, gym, trampolining and diving in different places. I have a positive outlook on life and try to live life to the full!

BIS Abu Dhabi is a much bigger school than I have worked at before and I enjoy working with so many different people with different experiences. It is great to work in a school with children whose vision is to be ambitious!
