I have been teaching for twenty five years and could not imagine myself doing anything else! I have a BA (hons) in French and German and, after training as an EAL teacher; I began my teaching career in Montpellier in the South of France many years ago! Since then I have taught in New York, Spain and Ireland and have taught all different age groups and stages throughout my career.
I worked in Doha College Al Waab for eighteen months, before joining Compass as a supply teacher last November.
In March, I was offered the opportunity to teach Year 2 in Gharaffa and loved working with and teaching my very motivated and funny pupils! I am really looking forward to the year ahead with my EY1 children and hope they will enjoy their first year in Compass.
As an educator, I always strive to encourage my pupils to feel confident in their own beliefs and convictions, to have imagination and creativity that knows no bounds. I want every child to enjoy learning from an early age and I really hope they take this enjoyment through to adulthood.
My favourite quote is a well-known Irish proverb;”Níl aon tinteán mar do thinteán féin”, which simply translates as “there is no place like home”.
When I am not working, I really enjoy socializing and spending time with my family and friends. A beach or pool day with my family and friends, followed by a good meal in a nice restaurant, is my idea of a perfect weekend! As a family, we really love travelling and take every opportunity we can to explore this part of the world!
