Joanna Harrison

Head of Year 1

Originally, I am from Portsmouth in the UK. I graduated from Plymouth University in the south of England. Throughout my teaching career I have held a number of positions, such as Art and Design co-ordinator as well as a school sports leader, and have taught both Year 3 and Year 5.

I am excited to continue teaching Year 1 next year. I am passionate about making learning active and engaging, making sure it is an enriching and relevant curriculum that children can be motivated by.

Personally I am an active person; I like to play lacrosse and experience new things. I love travelling and experiencing different cultures and I enjoy learning more about Dubai.

Being part of Nord Anglia International School Dubai is always thrilling and I enjoy taking on new teaching challenges and adventures.
