    Head of Music, Themaid Campus

    Alison Porter

    I have always loved music. I started guitar lessons at the age of seven and on the advice of my guitar teacher took up a second instrument and began playing the cornet in a brass band at the age of ten. I really enjoyed the excitement of playing in concerts and competitions. I went on to study trumpet at the Royal College of Music in London with Professor David Mason, most famous for being the Beatles’ trumpet player on records such as “Penny Lane” and “All you need is Love”. During my time at the Royal College, I won the Brass prize and was a member of the European Community Youth Orchestra playing with conductors such as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Bernard Haitink and Claudio Abbado.

    Anna Nowak

    My background is in psychology and psychotherapy with a focus on well-being and mindfulness. 

    I am originally from Poland, however shortly after graduating high school I moved to the UK to obtain my undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications, where I also worked as a counsellor supporting people dealing with variety of issues, including special needs. I have always been keen on helping children and adults in their learning journey and improving their well-being. This led me to work for schools and university in Chile as a psychologist, personal development facilitator and counsellor and now as an ALN coordinator and EAL teacher at Compass.

    English Teacher

    Catalina Espinoza

    I grew up in the beautiful city of sails, Auckland, New Zealand which is at the bottom of the world. Living in such an isolated country, I grew up dreaming of travel and with a thirst for adventure. I always wanted to be a teacher since I was a young girl and I saw the profession as my ticket to see the world. I completed my education and graduated from the University of Auckland in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts and Postgraduate Diploma in Education. I gained four years' experience in two large state schools in Auckland. During this time, I took on as many opportunities as I could such as running extracurricular clubs, football coaching, teaching film production and event planning before making the move to London in 2016.

    After two exciting years living in the UK and travelling throughout Europe, I moved back home to New Zealand. My thirst for adventure and love of travel didn't keep me still for very long and soon enough, the right opportunity presented itself in the form of working at an international school. Doha appealed to me as an place full of new experiences, wonderful people and exciting opportunities.
