Hannah Boardman

Year 2 Teacher

Mrs. Boardman gained her Early Years Teacher Status and a degree in Early Childhood Studies at Teesside University, going on to complete a school-centered initial teacher training programme and a PGCE in Primary Education.

I was born and raised in a small, seaside town in the North East of England and I have had a passion for teaching and learning since Primary School. After gaining Early Years Teacher Status and a degree in Early Childhood Studies at Teesside University, I went on to complete a School-Centered Initial Teacher Training programme and a PGCE in Primary Education. I was thrilled to secure a job teaching Year 5 children in an outstanding Primary school in England where I gained invaluable teaching experience. In 2017 I decided to make the move to Abu Dhabi and secured a teaching role at BIS Abu Dhabi.

I absolutely love my job! My aim is to instil a love of learning in children, providing them with fun, creative learning experiences and supporting them in their individual development to a positive and successful future. I love the philosophy of Nord Anglia Education and BIS Abu Dhabi in that they encourage children to reach for their dreams, try something new and to be ambitious. I’m extremely proud to be a part of the team at BIS Abu Dhabi and the global family Nord Anglia Education offers.

I consider myself to be a passionate, creative, and enthusiastic person who loves life! 
I enjoy sports, keeping active and I love being outdoors, particularly in the lovely sunshine of the UAE! I am living in Abu Dhabi with my husband who has worked as a paramedic here since 2014. We both enjoy travelling to different destinations and experiencing the diverse culture of the UAE. Seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland, skydiving in Dubai and paddle boarding in the Maldives are some of my holiday highlights. Most of all, I love spending quality time with my wonderful friends and family!

In life, I believe that fun, positivity, and kindness is key- a smile can go a very long way! 😊
