Geraldine Pritchard

Art and Design Teacher

I started teaching at Compass International School Madinat Khalifa campus in September 2014. The last year has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I look forward to further developing the Art skills of the students in Year 7 and Year 8 during the present academic year.

I have been teaching IGCSE, HIGCSE and International Baccalaureate Art and Design programs to students in International Schools in Botswana, Qatar and Oman for over twenty years.  I have a Diploma in Applied Art and Design and have completed various training courses as a member of the Association of International Schools in Africa as well as training for the International Baccalaureate Program in Vienna Austria.

Before returning to reside in Qatar for the second time I was extremely privileged to work for His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said under The Royal Guard of Oman and taught Art and Design to students of the Muscat Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

I would like to change the perception that Art has little significance as an examinable subject and to help students identify the cross curricular links it has with other subjects.

My favourite quote is: "Carpe Diem"

Being Ambitious means always striving to be the best you can possibly be in all areas of your life.
