PE Teacher

I joined Compass International School in 2020 as a Physical Education Teacher at Gharaffa Campus. Prior to this, I had been teaching PE in a different international school in Doha. Moving to Qatar has been a great experience, enabling me to grow as a teacher.

Growing up, I was passionate about sport and the opportunities it granted me. I lacked confidence whilst I was at school, but PE was the subject that helped me grow and believe in myself. My PE teacher was my inspiration and she helped me realise my desire to teach others.

After earning my teaching degree in Physical Education from the University of Bedfordshire, I lived and worked in England as a PE Teacher. Before moving to Qatar, I was Head of the PE department at a well accomplished school. Wanting to challenge and push myself as an educator, I decided to move and teach in an international school.

My goal as a teacher is to help pupils realise their potential and to reach out to pupils who, like myself, may struggle with certain aspects of school. I believe that PE is one of the most important subjects a pupil can take part in.  As well as promoting a healthy lifestyle, PE can assist pupils in gaining confidence; understand the importance of teamwork and help them discover new and exciting possibilities that they can excel in.
