Cassandra Ward


Nursery Teacher

Ms. Ward graduated with a BA from Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Canada specialising in History, Biology and English. She then went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Education specialising in Primary Education.

I moved to London to teach and started my career by doing long-term contracts in inner city London, and then moving on to teach Year 1 in Surrey, England. Teaching in London brought me many rewarding challenges that solidified my love of teaching.  I decided to make the move to BIS Abu Dhabi to experience a new place and start the next chapter of my teaching career!

Growing up in Canada, I have always enjoyed the outdoors. Nothing beats a campfire close to the lake on a warm summer night. Swimming, hiking and camping are some outdoor activities I enjoy.  When I have free time I also like creative activities and socialising with friends and family. Travel has always been a passion of mine. I love to learn about and experience different cultures and have been lucky enough to travel to many places in Europe, North America and the Caribbean. I am now exploring a new part of the world, while living and working in the UAE.
