Year 5, Primary Visual Arts Lead

I am absolutely delighted to continue my teaching career with the Year 5 Team at NAS Dubai.

My passion for education comes from a long line of teachers who decided from a very young age that my personality meant that I would be guaranteed to join them and took great joy in being proved right! After studying Psychology and Education at Stirling University, I worked for Barnardo’s Education team which prompted a move to London, I then qualified at the Institute of Education at UCL in 2007.

Originally from Scotland but having qualified in the English system, I have worked in educational settings in both countries for over 14 years.  Teaching in both KS1 and KS2 as class teacher and Head of Year, I have worked alongside fantastic colleagues and so many inspiring pupils who reinforce my passion for high quality, supportive and enjoyable education on a daily basis. During my time in Scotland, I was involved in embedding and developing ‘The Curriculum for Excellence’ and I am a firm believer in bringing aspects of a variety of curriculum to our diverse and ambitious planning and delivering of the highest quality teaching. Since my first teaching post in East London I have been lucky enough to have had a truly diverse teaching career to date and my experiences have allowed me to develop my passion for delivering the highest quality learning and teaching for pupils from all backgrounds. Having taught in London and Aberdeen, I have had the joy of teaching children from all parts of the world. It is my continuing desire to support and nurture all of my pupils to access the curriculum in a personalised style   that suits them as developing learners in an enjoyable and engaging setting.

In 2010 I decided to return to the IOE to complete my Master’s Degree in Art and Design in Education. My thesis focused on the use of art and design techniques to overcome barriers to learning in all curriculum areas and this is something I still have a real passion for. I am always excited to explore the huge variety of creative resources that NAS Dubai has to offer pupils.  As well as enjoying teaching art and design it is also my pleasure to be Head of Visual Arts for primary and to liaise with our secondary Art department, offering a vast range of opportunities for all of our pupils. 

Outside of school I am a keen photographer who adores travel and have been lucky enough to see some really wonderful parts of the world thanks in part to my last three years in Dubai. This country has offered me some fabulous new experiences so far and even more beautiful photo opportunities.
