Being from Wales, the "Land of Song" I have always had a passion for Music. I studied my Bachelor of Music degree in Cardiff before moving to Southampton to complete my PGCE in Secondary Music. I began teaching in 2007 and after 3 years in the UK I decided to broaden my horizons and I accepted a teaching job in Qatar.
I acquired the taste for international teaching and following three years in Qatar I left to teach in China and then Thailand, where I was Head of Music and Drama. During my time in Asia I was elected as a member of the executive committee for FOBISIA Music. This role enabled me be a part of massive musical festivals combining students from all over Asia for performances and musical experiences. To be part of an organisation that planned and gave students these amazing opportunities was a great experience.
Qatar called me back again in 2017 and I am very much enjoying my life here in the desert. I am an active member of both Doha Rugby Club and Doha Netball Club and I feel very settled in this country now. It is amazing to see how much Qatar has grown and developed over the last ten years and I am excited to see what it looks like in another couple!
