I was born and raised in West London and consider myself to be a proud Londoner. I grew up in a household where education was very important and is the reason behind my steady academic progress. I graduated from the University of Roehampton with a bachelors degree in Criminology and Human Rights. I later completed a Masters in Contemporary Ethics at Heythrop College, University of London. I have since continued to study professional development courses aimed at enhancing my knowledge and skills as an educator.
I have been teaching since 2012 across a number of schools in London and abroad. I worked in Saudi Arabia at a female university, which was very different from inner London schools. My last role before joining NAISAK was for a secondary school in Essex, U.K where I was Head of Religious Education. I am pleased to say I had two years of outstanding GCSE results above national average.
My teaching philosophy includes encouraging students to be autonomous and inquisitive in their learning. My classroom is an environment where students feel confident and are provided with experiences that foster their creativity, promote exploration, nurture self-identity and community relationships.
I am thrilled to be joining NAISAK and becoming part of an international family of outstanding schools. I greatly look forward to organising extra curricular activities for my students and trips to some of the marvellous museums Doha has to offer. I moved to Qatar in 2019 with my husband who is also a teacher. We absolutely love being in Qatar and are very thankful for the opportunity to be part of the thriving expat community here in Doha.
