Lianne Boyce 2

Head of Year 3

I have worked for Nord Anglia for four years and have seventeen years teaching experience. 

I hail from the North and started my teaching career in a small village school in Scotland before deciding to try my hand at teaching internationally. My travels took me to Spain and then Dubai, where I taught in KS1 as well as leading early literacy and numeracy. After some time in Dubai, I relocated back to the UK, taking up a post in London where I was Head of Year 4 and Head of English for four years. Realising that the British weather was still not to my taste, I returned to the warmer climate of Dubai where I joined NAS as a Year 4, and then Year 2, teacher. For the last few years, I have been teaching in Year 3 and I am looking forward to leading the Year 3 team this year.
I believe that education should be a happy, engaging and challenging experience for every child. I recognise that every child in my class is different but that they all have one thing in common; they are each entitled to a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which they can grow academically, emotionally and socially. All children can learn and therefore my key to success is the personal relationship that I create with each child in my class. By recognising every child’s potential and learning style, I can encourage my children to be the best they can be. I believe that school should help children to become confident individuals, who are independent and creative in their thinking, and should provide opportunities for children to judge, analyse, think and discover for themselves. 
When I am not working hard, I enjoy spending time with friends, going to the cinema and relaxing by the pool or on the beach. I have been known to get quite competitive when it comes to having the best tan! I also enjoy reading and like to figure skate and snowboard when I get the chance. 
I am excited for the year ahead and I am looking forward to meeting my new class.
