My name is Sumayya Abdul-Cader, and I am looking forward to joining the Year Two team this year. I completed my undergraduate degree in Nutrition and Health at the University of Roehampton in London. Upon completing my degree, I went on to work within a Special Educational Needs School where I gained my first taste of teaching. I spent four years in the Special Educational Needs School before deciding it was time to make a move and face a new challenge. I decided to further my career by joining a highly reputable mainstream school based in Kings Cross, which is recognised amongst the top 1% of Primary schools in the UK for attainment.
Having seen my passion for teaching, the school sponsored my training and I went on to complete my PGCE at the University of East London in 2018. I taught in Key Stage 1 last year and have been teaching Key Stage 2 most recently. I am now looking forward to bringing the experiences that I have gained over the last seven years in education to NAISAK.
Outside of school, I enjoy travelling, keeping fit and cooking with my husband. I am the youngest of 4 girls and very much love spending time with my family.
I am looking forward to joining the warm and friendly NAISAK family very much. I believe that every child matters and has the right to an education, and so cannot wait to start this new journey in Qatar!
