I was born and raised in Manchester, UK and couldn’t wait to escape the rain! I studied Mathematics at Cardiff University in Wales. Following my studies, I worked in Greece, Thailand and France as a SCUBA Diving instructor. This was a fantastic opportunity to explore the world and experience different cultures.
I decided to pursue a career in teaching, so I trained to be a Maths and Science teacher in my hometown. I realised how rewarding teaching can be and how much I enjoyed being in the classroom.
After graduating from my training, I moved to Abu Dhabi to teach Maths where I have been for 3 years. It is a fantastic city full of lovely people. Over the last 2 years, I have also proudly completed my Masters in Education, which has guided my teaching from an evidence-based perspective.
During my time in Abu Dhabi, BIS Abu Dhabi has shone out as an exceptional British school with a warm ethos.
I am obsessed with SCUBA Diving, and I explore new underwater adventures at every opportunity. The sea is a magical place!
I enjoy trying new things, and Abu Dhabi is a great city for this with new things happening all the time. Recently I tried skydiving for the first time. I look forward to travelling to more countries and experiencing new cultures.
I am very competitive and enjoy games, and I’m not always a bad loser! I’m looking forward to being involved with the BIS Abu Dhabi Chess team.
