Nursery - Caterpillars

I’m really looking forward to another fantastic year in Nursery at NAS Dubai.

I am originally from London and I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Studies at Oxford Brookes University. This is where I also completed my PGCE teaching qualification, specialising in the Early Years, in 2013. I have worked in two different primary schools in London and have spent a year living and working in Dubai. I have loved getting to know this amazing city and teaching in such a culturally diverse setting has been so fascinating and fulfilling.

I have worked across EYFS and Key Stage 1 and I have been really lucky to work in a variety of different settings throughout my training and career. I have a particular passion for teaching in the Early Years and I believe that supporting learning and development in those crucial first years of school is very rewarding. During my career, I have held roles including leading Pupil Voice groups across EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, as I believe that it is important for schools to listen to the needs and views of the pupils, in order to create a happy, safe and  successful learning environment. 

I am a friendly, warm and enthusiastic person and I enjoy meeting and talking to new people. I have many hobbies including dancing and pilates, and my aim for this next year is to learn to cook some delicious Arabian dishes.
