Tina Reed

English Teacher

I came in to teaching quite late in life: like Peter Pan's sister, I couldn't quite accept the idea of growing up until I reached the ripe old age of 34. I completed my joint honours English and History degree in 2004 and went straight into a Graduate Teacher post. I taught for 11 years in one school, 2 years in another and spent a year on supply in between, getting an idea of the range of schools out there. 14 years on and I still get a buzz out of literature and the different interpretations each cohort has to offer. 

My own education was mainly abroad, I grew up in Singapore, Brunei and Germany. As a forces child, an ex-colleague used to call me 'A child of The World - you belong nowhere but fit in everywhere'. I like that. I have been itching to live the international life again for years, but family commitments have prevented it. I visited the UAE and fell in love with the diverse cultures and I have been told that Doha is like a quieter, less commercial Dubai. Nord Anglia Education is by reputation the best group of schools to work for, and I consider myself very lucky to be embarking on this adventure. 

In my spare time (although as a teacher I don’t have much……..), I am a keen horse rider, dancer and swimmer. I love to try new things, recently having tried abseiling, sky diving, husky sledging, snow mobiles, and water skiing. In fact anything rather than hold a spider! Since losing my parents, my new mantra is "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass; it's about learning to dance in the rain". That's not always easy though, which is why I'm coming to live in the desert!
