    Deputy Head of Campus and Year 2 Teacher

    Alfie Creissen

    I have been teaching in Early Years and Key Stage 1 for the past ten years. After  completing a degree in Early Childhood Education, I took up the post of Nursery Teacher at the Nord Anglia International School, Shanghai. I then moved to our school in Warsaw, Poland as a Nursery Teacher and Early Years Coordinator. This role gave me a greater understanding of how children learn through the different stages, whilst allowing me to develop my leadership skills.

    After my time in Warsaw, I took on the role of Reception Teacher and High Performance Learning Leader at The British School of Guangzhou. This allowed me the opportunity to continue to develop independent, child-centered learning, taking this concept through with our Year 1 students. I believe in children using the outdoor areas as part of their learning experience, using real life objects to discover and become inquisitive learners

    I believe in our school’s ambitious approach, never giving up and continually trying to become the best that we can be. My MA in education from Nottingham University enabled me to explore many ways to enhance the learning experience in and beyond the classroom.  As an educator, I am keen to develop learning programmes that motivate, excite and challenge young learners.  We want them to make the most of their time at school as the launch-pad for a positive and productive future in society.

    I moved to Qatar and the Compass team in 2019, accompanied by my wife Victoria, who is a speech and language therapist, and my beautiful daughter Eleanor Rose.

    Having graduated from St. Mary’s University College, Belfast in 2013 with a Bachelor of Education, this will be my eighth year teaching and inspiring children of all age groups.

    This is my fifth year living in Qatar where I previously worked in another international school as a Classroom Teacher in Years 3 and 4.  I have also worked as a Year Group Leader for two years. I joined Compass in 2019. 

    Prior to moving to Qatar, I worked in a primary school in Ireland for 3 years where Gaeilge (Irish) was used as the main language of instruction.

    I love to read during my spare time as well as socialising, travelling and playing the piano.

    Diane Moore

    I have been studying and working in Early Years and Primary education for the past 9 years. I graduated from Liverpool John Moores University with a Bachelors Degree, specialising in Early Childhood Studies in 2014 and then embarked upon a Post Graduate Diploma in Education, graduating in 2015. I took my first teaching position in a small town called Hartlepool in the U.K and completed my Masters Degree in Education.

    Following my first year of teaching, I moved to Qatar to teach in an international school. This is my fifth teaching year and I am extremely excited to join the Compass International team.

    In my spare time, I enjoy reading, socialising and travelling. I have also recently taken up cycling, although I am not quite as fast as I would like to be, practice makes perfect!
