I am thoroughly delighted to be joining the Year 4 team next year after a fabulous two years in Year 6.

Originally, I am from Newcastle upon Tyne although I have previously lived in London for seven years and have now enjoyed Dubai life for two more. I hold a BSc Honours degree in Natural Sciences from Durham University and a PGCE from Kingston University.  Formerly, I have enjoyed teaching Year 6 in an East London primary school for six years. Additionally, I have experience in leading my two favourite subjects, Mathematics and PE, across my former school and I have also been the phase leader for Years 5 and 6. Following this, I have had the pleasure of two more years of teaching experience in Year 6 in the wonderful, warm family that is NAS Dubai.

Teaching is not just my job. It is my absolute vocation. A memory that springs to mind is one of me sitting in my own primary school and being so immersed into a history topic by my brilliant teacher that I begged my mum to take me to Egypt that very summer to see a real-life Egyptian tomb. It is that absolute desire to learn, that unquenchable thirst to find out more, that has led me onto the thrilling path of education. I want to be that inspirational person, the one who ignites that flame in young minds. That is why I became a teacher.

I strongly believe that children learn best in a warm, engaging environment where a strong emphasis is placed on the teacher facilitating child-led enquiry and promoting independence. My overall aims are to inspire children to develop a life-long love of learning, to nurture their individual talents, to help them reach their full potential and to set them off on a journey where they will ultimately achieve their dreams.

My interests outside of school include sport, particularly swimming, yoga, running, the gym and surfing. I love to experience new things and since moving to Dubai, I have had the thrilling experience of learning to ski in the indoor ski slope, followed by a nerve-wracking yet wonderful first skiing holiday in France. Aside from sport, I love sitting down with a fantastic book, eating out with friends and family and travelling to new exotic places. Sri Lanka and Bali have been my top two countries so far and I have many more to visit on my never-ending list!

I am very excited to take on the responsibility of being a Year 4 teacher next year and to work closely with my fantastic new team. I am, of course, very eager to meet my lovely new class, learn all about their talents and see what I can do to help them achieve their goals.
