Mandy Smith


Year 1 Teacher

Ms Smith graduated with a B.Ed Honours Degree from the University of Northampton and has been teaching for eighteen years.

During my career I have taught in EYFS, Key Stage One and Year Three.

I have been the Foundation Manager and Key Stage One Leader, a SENCo for ten years, and a member of the Senior Leadership Team and Interim Assistant Head. I am also a Forest School Leader; learning outside is something I am passionate about. 

I decided to come and teach out in Abu Dhabi after visiting on holiday. I was very taken with the feeling that anything is possible here. I needed a new challenge and a bit of an adventure. I share the same ethos and values as the British International School so I am thrilled to be part of the Year 1 team and continuing my career here.

I am passionate about nature and animals. I am interested in conservation and caring for the world around me. I enjoy living in Abu Dhabi where the sun always shines and love making the most of outside living. I enjoy crafting and making things.  I have three grown up daughters and a son-in-law who I am very proud of. They all live in the UK in Milton Keynes. I enjoy walking and swimming to keep fit and am looking forward to continuing this.
