Robyn Maxwell profile

Year 3 Teacher

I first gained my MA Honors Degree in Primary Education from the University of Dundee, in Scotland. During this time, I was able to stay away from home which enabled me to meet some amazing people and this had a huge impact on my independence and determination to succeed.

During my four years at Dundee University I worked in many schools within different councils and this allowed me to follow different teaching strategies and adapt to different techniques. This was a great start to my career as I knew I had to learn to become flexible whilst teaching.

I was given the opportunity to travel to South of Spain in Almerimar for a few months to teach in an International School. This was a fabulous opportunity to develop my speaking and understanding of the Spanish language as well as working with a different curriculum. I was lucky enough to travel the south of Spain whilst on this working trip.

After graduating from the University of Dundee, I moved home to Glasgow and worked in an amazing school for a few years. I was encouraged to reflect on my practise after each day and this ensured that I was developing both personally and professionally as a class teacher. I was surrounded by a lot of support and enjoyed speaking to other teachers to find out their teaching methods and techniques they used in their classes. I found that being prepared and organised was a great way to succeed in this school. I was involved in a pupil committee which ran each month as well as taking after school clubs which involved the local community and the pupils. I enjoyed my time at this school very much.

In my free time, I love to explore different cities and meet people from different cultures which I can learn more about. I am very excited to progress as a teacher as well as an individual in Doha and learn from other professionals around the world. I know Doha is an up and coming city and I cannot wait to see what this holds for me. I look forward to meeting everyone, I know I will have to get used to the climate change first.
