Cornelia Herman

Year 11 Form Tutor and Maths Teacher

I have 29 years’ experience as a teacher of Mathematics. I started my teaching career in South Africa, but after 21 years my family and I moved to Doha. Compass International, Madinat Khalifa is the second school I have worked in while living in Doha.

I have undertaken a range of Leadership qualifications: Cluster Leader training; leading Teachers in Mathematics; External Marker and Moderator. 

Working in Doha has given me the opportunity to work with many different nationalities; both colleagues and students.

The staff members at Compass International School are very helpful and caring.

I have a great love for individual sports as well as team games. I am a qualified Netball coach, umpire and athletics coach.  I enjoy culture, especially art, opera, ballet and plays.

My most precious gift is my daughter.

My favourite quote is: "You can do it and believe in yourself."

Be Ambitious means: To be challenged every day…
