I look forward to a new school year as the classroom teacher for 6B at NAS Dubai. I anticipate an enjoyable and fulfilling experience getting to know both children and parents.

Following my Physical Education and Youth Sport degree at Sheffield Hallam University in 2007, I completed a PGCE at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln. Ever since leaving the post graduate degree, I have been teaching. My first teaching role was at North Leverton Primary School in Nottinghamshire. After these first few years in teaching and becoming a lead Mathematics teacher and PE specialist, I decided to do something I had planned to do for years: teach abroad.

In the summer of 2011, I arrived in Dubai. Like many people, I planned to work here for a couple of years before choosing an exciting new destination to teach in… I am now in my ninth year. I call Dubai, and the UAE, my second home, full of opportunity and diversity which makes living and teaching here so great.

During my time in Dubai, I have taught Year 6 children at two different schools, preparing primary school children, both academically and socially for the transition into secondary school. I enjoy teaching and learning in all subject areas, striving to make learning fun, challenging and relevant to the environment we live in. I have enjoyed being a Year Leader, Head of Mathematics and STEAM Lead Teacher; working closely with colleagues to develop teaching and learning opportunities in schools. It has also been very rewarding to be involved in the sporting achievements of a school and supporting students with their extra-curricular endeavours.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my small family, reading by the pool and catching up with friends. I will also continue to persevere with golf, a pastime I took up since moving to Dubai, although the number of lost golf balls can work out rather expensive!
