After completing rigorous studies and a variety of school placements, I spent four years teaching in a high performing school in London and the last four years teaching Year 6 students in Dubai.
During my time in London, I taught in Year 3 and Year 5, progressing to the post of Year Leader in each year group. Shortly after this, I became the Head of English, which I thoroughly enjoyed as I have a passion for literacy. I then joined the Senior Leadership Team, where I worked alongside the Head Teacher to implement whole school initiatives. These experiences have developed my pedagogy, whilst providing me with a wealth of skills and knowledge.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the vibrant city of Dubai and my experience of international teaching. For the past four years in Dubai, it has been an absolute privilege to work with students from all over the world with such diverse backgrounds; I find it fascinating to learn about their different cultures and experiences. For the previous four years, I have taught in Year 6 and I take enjoyment and pride in facilitating children growing into mature, independent learners, who are ready for the next stage of their educational journey.
I endeavour to get to know each pupil as an individual, providing them with a happy and safe learning environment, where they feel free to take risks, make mistakes and have ownership of their own learning. Through creating an engaging and challenging curriculum, I strive to instill a love of learning, where pupils flourish into resilient, ambitious and successful young people.
