Year 2

I have been a teacher at NAS Dubai for two years. Initially I taught in Year 4 and this will be my second year as part of the fantastic Year 2 team. 

In 2000 I graduated from University of Dundee with an honours degree in Psychology and then I completed my PGCE (Educational Psychology option) at Stranmillis College, Belfast. During my teaching practice I was placed in a local primary school, near to my home, and I was delighted to be offered a teaching post after graduation. Initially I taught Primary 6 (Year 5) for two years before moving to Primary 7 (Year 6). I remained at that school until 2017 when I fulfilled a career ambition of teaching internationally, with a move to another Nord Anglia school, the British School of Beijing, Sanlitun. There I taught Year 5 for two years and held the roles of Learning Support Coordinator and PSHE Curriculum Leader.
My passion lies in the pastoral area of school. I know that happy and content children are those who achieve most in school and the wellbeing of each child is my top priority. I love to see children blossom in confidence and to achieve more than they ever thought possible. 
I have been a coach with both a FOBISIA and Nord Anglia Games team and enjoyed watching the teams achieve their dreams of success through hard work, determination and superb teamwork. I always love being involved in afterschool activities and hope that as COVID restrictions ease those will begin again. I am passionate about Global Campus and the wonderful opportunities it gives our fabulous students.
I live in Dubai with my husband, Mark and two daughters, Bella and Poppy. The girls attend NAS Dubai and next year will move into Year 6 and Year 5 respectively. We love to go to the cinema, support Irish Rugby, watch (and in my husband’s case, play) cricket and generally work hard and play hard.
I look forward to another year working with my Year 2 class in NAS Dubai.
