    Nadia Williams-Dhahbi

    As-salaam alaikum, I’m Nadia, I’m 33 years old and from a little village called Poulton -Le - Fylde in Lancashire, UK. I have lived in Qatar for five years, which has been such a great adventure and is a place I now call my home. In February I got married to my husband who is from Tunisia, and we are really excited to become a part of the community at Al Khor.

    I studied Primary Education, specialising in Early Education at the University of Cumbria, and I have studied ever since, most recently a Makaton sign course. I am eager to begin my NAISAK journey alongside wonderful staff and children, developing relationships and strong links with the Al Khor community.

    I studied in both Dubai and England, graduating with a BSc and then getting my PGCEi through Nottingham University. I have been working as a Foundation teacher for 3 years at NAISAK. My first ever teaching post was at this very school as a primary music teacher, I am amazed by how much the school has grown since I joined in 2014! 

    Teaching students with such a vast mix of different cultures and backgrounds appealed to me when I first joined NAISAK. The strong community within the school made me feel comfortable and welcome and I’m proud to be part of the NAISAK family.

    Hello, I’m Kathleen and I’ve been working at NAISAK since 2016. I am proud to be part of the Nord Anglia family and feel they have always supported me in my role, helping me complete my NQT and providing a rich variety of professional development opportunities. I started out at NAISAK teaching year 4 which was an incredible opportunity but completely out of my comfort zone as an Early Years practitioner! I learned a lot and loved the challenge, but I am pleased to be back in Foundation working with the little ones. I’ve loved each of my classes during my time here and I always find the time to pop in and see my old students – it’s amazing to see how much they’ve grown!

    Laura Snape

    I am from a small village in Derbyshire and I graduated in 2007 with a BA (Hons) in Primary Education with QTS from Bishop Grosseteste University College in Lincoln. I have been teaching since then in two different Primary Schools, specialising in Early Years.

    In my spare time I like to walk my two dogs, spend time with my family – especially my 18 year old daughter, socialising with my friends, going to the cinema, reading and keeping fit by going to the gym.

    I am really excited about moving to Qatar as it has always been my dream to teach abroad. I am looking forward to gaining new experiences and having the opportunity to explore and learn.

    My career in education began when I joined Pride Kids Academic Pre-school in South Africa as a Teaching Assistant in 2008. After working at the Pre-school, I decided to further my career in teaching, and began a four-year Bachelor Degree in Education (BeD, Foundation Phase), which I completed through the University of South Africa in 2013.
