Hi, my name is Niki Jefferson and this is my second year living and working in Qatar. I am the Year 4 leader and was fortunate to have had an amazing class last year. This made the transition from the UK so much easier for me, as I looked forward to coming to school every day. I’m hoping that my current year 4 class will be equally as wonderful – good signs so far! I’m from Brighton in the UK and taught there for five years. Prior to this, I taught in an International School in Mexico City and have also taught in Ho Chi Mihn City, Vietnam and Cairo, Egypt. Teaching internationally has provided me with a wonderfully rich and diverse life in terms of travel. I have visited some amazing countries and met some incredible children along the way. Prior to working overseas I lived and taught in London for more than ten years and have a great love for my capital city.
I have taught in all year groups across Key stage 1 and 2 from Year 1 up to Year 6. I particularly enjoy teaching in Year 4 or 5. I have held a number of senior leadership positions including Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 coordinator. I have led subject specialisms within schools including literacy and numeracy. I am currently part of the SLT in my school and seek to continually improve the educational experience for all children. I am responsible for the behaviour and progress of children in Year 4 and for Science across the whole school.
