Catherine Badesha


Head of Year 3

Ms Badesha graduated from the University of Hertfordshire with BEd in Primary Education with QTS and joined BIS Abu Dhabi in 2015.

After graduating from the University of Hertfordshire with BEd in Primary Education with QTS in 2009, I began my career teaching a year 3 class in Hertfordshire. I continued to stay there for three years, taking over the Head of PE role and teaching year 5. I then moved to Dubai in 2012 where I taught in year 2 and was part of the English committee.

I grew up in Hertforshire, England which is just North of London however, for the last few years 'home' has been the UAE. I have two younger sisters who live in England. I love to make things whether it be scrapbooks, cards or even paintings. At school I enjoyed Drama and love to bring lots of drama in to my lessons. One of my favourite things to do is read. My all time favourite author is Roald Dahl and to this day I can remember my year 3 teacher reading 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' to me.

I enjoy keeping fit and participating in 'Zumba' classes. I enjoy visiting new places, learning about different cultures and meeting new people. I have travelled to a few places but there are still lots of places I'd love to go and see.
