I am extremely passionate about teaching within the Early Years and believe it is such a vital time for our young learners to grow, learn and develop as individuals. I believe children learn best when they are able to take ownership over their learning, meaning that they are truly engaged. I aspire to achieve this within my classroom through building positive relationships, understanding each child’s personality and their interests. By doing this, I can ensure that the classroom encourages children to become independent learners at all opportunities, including when playing and exploring, whilst also establishing a safe and secure ethos so that curiosity is embedded and investigated when learning.
Here at NAS we not only follow but embed a child centered philosophy, with your child taking center stage at the heart of their own learning. We believe all children are unique and enter school brimming with a wealth of knowledge, understanding and skills drawn from their experiences of the world so far. Our curriculum reinforces the overarching principles of the necessity to nurture positive relationships, the understanding that each child is unique and to create enabling environments in which they will succeed.
We, as facilitators support, encourage and help develop their experiences through open ended play opportunities. I believe avidly that children learn best through play and incorporate both the indoor and outdoor areas as first class learning environments in their Early Years journey.
In my time away from school I love going on adventures and enjoy travelling to different countries, having ticked a few off my list since living in Dubai, with many more places left to explore. I enjoy getting fully immersed in new cultures and make it my mission to always try local food in every country I visit. I am also a keen netball player and really enjoy being part of a team when playing.
I am really excited to continue my journey at NAS Dubai this year and can’t wait to facilitate our young learners to become confident, happy and independent children.
