Having spent the last 9 years teaching and leading in Cairo, Egypt, I decided it was time to take the next step on my leadership journey by joining the BSG and Nord Anglia family in Guangzhou. Although the academic year 2019-20 turned out to be a very challenging one, I was blessed to be able to lead my previous school in Cairo as Deputy Head Teacher, and was very proud to be awarded an International School Award in January 2020, which recognised the effective and successful pastoral care systems, which I lead the school to successfully implement.
I have taught every year group in the Primary Phase, and think there is something unique and special in each and every year group, as children learn and grow. Although I miss my time in the classroom with the children, I enjoy enabling and empowering colleagues, working together to find the best ways to allow each and every child to reach their potential and develop a lifelong love of learning.
I am starting my new life in China along with my husband, Ibrahim and we look forward to making Guangzhou our new home. I am very excited to explore China, as I enjoy walking and being out and about in nature. I also enjoy scuba diving as well as getting lost in a good book! Some might describe me a 'shoe collector,' as I cannot resist a sparkly pair of shoes!
