Nursery - Grasshoppers

I am extremely passionate about teaching and I have a special interest in early childhood development. I believe it is crucial to build solid foundations in those early years of a child’s life to enable them to grow and flourish in later years.

The Early Years Foundation Stage builds on what children can do and supports children to reach their potential in all areas of their development and learning. This includes learning through play and being motivated in a positive way by both their peers and supporting adults at school and at home.

I qualified from Sheffield Hallam University with a BA Honours degree with qualified teacher status having specialized in Early Years. I am also qualified as a Montessori teacher. My interest obviously lay in Early Years but also in EAL and SEN. I have taught for 5 years at BIS Abu Dhabi, another Nord Anglia Education School. I have lived and worked in the Middle East for many years and enjoy the diversity of the many different cultures and nationalities within school and the wider community.

I am very excited about continuing my role as a Nursery teacher at NAS Dubai and feel staying in a school within the Nord Anglia family will continue to develop my skills and experience professionally. This year I recently finished an Early Years course with Nord Anglia University relevant to how at NAS Dubai we implement our learning through  In The Moment Planning and Play.  I have also been following a personal interest to learn British Sign Language. BSL on which I have completed level one with a distinction. I will be following this interest further over the coming months. 

I enjoy travelling and discovering new places. I find the opportunity to meet new people, explore new languages, locations and the chance for new adventures invaluable. The travel experiences I have had have influenced me in a really positive way and my aim  to travel further and wider around the world. Eco friendly as possible of course.
