I initially visited the UAE in 2014 and instantly fell in love the culture, people and atmosphere. A year later I accepted a Science teacher position at an international school in Dubai and moved from my school in the UK. I was a part of the team for two years before moving to my favourite city in the Emirates, Abu Dhabi. I chose BIS Abu Dhabi because of the school’s ethos, dedicated staff, diligent pupils and the immense support that parents give to the school community. The school felt just like home.
I have become an author and screenwriter and draw most of my inspiration from my teaching career. I am equally as passionate about food as I am about Science and enjoy researching recipes from various cultures and adding a modern twist to them. I also work as an examiner for Edexcel and it all started from my students asking “Ms why do you write exam style questions for us to respond to when you mark our books? You might as well work for an exam board?”
