    primary teacher helping year 3 students in maths class

Melanie Andre

I am really looking forward to joining the Year 1 team at NAS Dubai this year. I graduated from The University of Northampton with a degree in Primary Education and have been teaching for 10 years.

During this time, I have worked internationally in Thailand, Panama and China. I have always worked exclusively at British Schools, therefore I have a sound knowledge of the curriculum.

I can’t wait to get to know all of the children in my new class and ensure a smooth transition from the Early Years. I believe that children’s interests should be used to inspire planning and create a personalised approach to learning. I make it my priority to assist children in becoming confident and self-motivated learners through play, discovery and guided techniques. I have worked across all Key Stages so have good understanding of progression, particularly from EYFS into KS1.

I have lots of hobbies and interests, but of course, my biggest passion is traveling. I am also a qualified rescue scuba diver and I enjoy keeping active. Dubai has always been a city that has interested me and I can’t wait to start exploring and learning about a new culture.
