I studied at Canterbury University in Christchurch New Zealand where I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and Biological Sciences. I have always enjoyed working with children so decided to combine both my passions and become a Chemistry teacher. Previously I have been working at Mount Albert Grammar School in Auckland, New Zealand. During my time at MAGS I have been involved with creating unit plans and assessments for various courses at each year level as Teacher in Charge of multiple Achievement Standards.
I decided to join the NAISAK team as a way to progress my teaching career. I am looking to gain insight at an international school and how each class incorporates the British curriculum as it is one I am less familiar with. I am excited to undertake the challenge of taking on a new year, with new classes in a country I have only spent a year in.
Growing up in New Zealand I am fortunate enough to have spent a lot of time enjoying the outdoors. My hobbies include swimming and wakeboarding during the summer months in Lake Wanaka and snowboarding through winter at many of the various ski fields NZ has to offer. The beautiful forest ranges and surrounding Islands provide incredible scenery and amazing day walks or overnight tramps which are done all year round. I have recently discovered a passion for travelling and exploring new places which is one of the reasons why I chose to come to Qatar.
