Born and raised in Newcastle, England, I have had a love for drama and literature since I was old enough to speak! I received my degree in English Literature and Film Studies in 2009 from Northumbria University, and then went on to complete my English and Drama teacher training at Newcastle University. After spending three years working at a large secondary school in Newcastle, I decided to leave the North East for the sunnier, sandier shores of Qatar! I have been in Doha since 2014 and I am extremely happy to be joining the Compass team in 2020. My teaching passions include modern literature, poetry analysis, and incorporating film and media into my lessons wherever possible. Sharing my enthusiasm for my subject is something I am incredibly lucky to be able to do every day, and I look forward to inspiring a new group of students to fall in love with literature.
