Abbie Goodson

PE Teacher and Year 12 Form Tutor

I graduated from Edge Hill University, having completed a BA (Hons) in Physical Education and School Sport. I completed my school centred teacher training in Merseyside, working in a variety of secondary schools.

My husband and I made the exciting yet daunting decision to move abroad together and follow our passion. I gained my first international teaching position as a secondary Physical Education teacher here in Qatar, in 2014. I was blown away by the incredible sporting opportunities here in Qatar for our young students. In 2016, I was then very fortunate to become the Head of Year 11, alongside my teaching post, giving me the opportunity to support, challenge and guide students through their final IGCSE years.

Qatar has become a very special part of my life and I think of it as my second home. We proudly welcomed a beautiful baby boy here last year. Some of my other favourite things are yoga, golf and netball!  I also love to travel and explore new cities and new culture. 

I am extremely excited to start my next chapter at Compass and thrilled to become a part of the Themaid family.
