Jessica Thornton

I graduated from Waikato University in New Zealand with a Bachelor of Teaching, specialising in Physical Education. I have experience of teaching Early Years and Primary children both as a classroom teacher and a PE teacher.

I am now in my ninth year of international teaching in Dubai and it has been an amazing experience to be part of the founding team at Nord Anglia International School Dubai. 

I am passionate about teaching Early Years, in particular I have a love for role play, physical development and outdoor learning. I am looking forward to being part of the outstanding EYFS unit at NAS Dubai. 

Being from the beautiful country of New Zealand I enjoy the outdoors and sports. I play team sports such as touch and netball and like to run to keep fit. I have a young family and enjoy spending time on the weekends outside at the beach, pool and parks.
