Amelia Norrie

Head of Year 11, Teacher of iGCSE and IB Business and Economics

I joined Madinat Khalifa in August 2014 as of Head of Years 10 and 11 and teaching IGCSE Business Studies and IB Business Management.

I hold a BA Honours in International Business Management, spending a year at the Universidad de Malaga and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education for Business Studies (14-19).

Thus far I have had 6 years of experience working in Further and Higher Education and secondary schools in the UK and Qatar. Subjects include, Business, Economics, Travel and Tourism, Employability Skills and Financial Studies. In addition I have achieved certification for an Assessors Award and completed an Aspirant Leader Programme.

I am also an examiner for Cambridge and have also examined A Levels in the past.

I have previously volunteered to teach English over a Summer at a Junior School in Koh Samui, Thailand, combining my love of travelling and facilitating the progress and future of others.

On a personal level I enjoy netball, reading, studying (at times), spending time with my younger siblings (when in the UK) and travelling in order to experience different cultures and of course to see ‘the big wide world’. 

What I would like to achieve in Madinat Khalifa is : To facilitate students in their personal journey to achieve their aspirations and in doing so making a positive impact on both their personal and academic progress.

My favourite quote is: "Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead, where there is no path and leave a trail." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

What be ambitious means to me: Being on a journey to achieve your aspirations, setting yourself a personal challenge or a target and never giving up - If you don’t succeed at first, try, try again.
