Year 1

With nearly 30 years of teaching experience in the UK, Singapore and UAE, I have found that I am constantly looking for that next challenge.

I have enjoyed a variety of roles during my teaching career, whether it is working and teaching younger or older children, being a curriculum coordinator, mentoring of new trainee teachers, training teachers in best practice, running workshops for parents or being a team player. My varied experience has allowed me to interact with fellow professionals at all levels. My particular professional interests include early years, inquiry-based learning and nurturing internationally confident and happy children.
My family and I have been living in the UAE for nearly 14 years and enjoy all the opportunities and travel experiences that the UAE region has to offer. This has included visiting many countries, camping and road trips with great friends and always finding that good book to curl up with.
It has been 6 years since I joined Nord Anglia International School Dubai. It has been great working and contributing to the Early Years Team here at NAS Dubai and I look forward to working in Primary in Year One  and having another successful year.
