Katie Blackman


Year 1 Leader

Miss Blackman gained her teacher qualifications from Leeds Metropolitan University, and joined BIS Abu Dhabi in 2015.

During my time at University, I spent time teaching at a primary school in Montpellier, France, as part of a languages specialism. I have spent 2 years at a school in Manchester, teaching Year 3 and leading French across the school.  I have always had a longing to travel and experience other cultures so I took the decision to relocate to the UAE. I am very lucky to teach at the British International School Abu Dhabi and to work alongside the inspirational teachers here.

I am friendly and sociable and I love to seize every opportunity that comes my way. I enjoy meeting new people and exploring the sights and rich culture that Abu Dhabi has to offer. I love learning new languages.
