IB Design & Technology, Assistant Headteacher

British born and bred, educated in London, graduating from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in Design & Technology Education, it’s been my passion to teach students how to effectively design and make products, from ‘conception to creation’.  As a lifelong learner myself I have also completed my Masters degree in Education.

I bring an extensive wealth of teaching and leadership experience of 16 years, 11 of which at middle management and 2 as a senior leader in outstanding schools with outstanding results.  I am extremely proud of my achievements, key leader in writing the first UK SSAT bid for a joint award in Engineering and Languages to my more recent role in procurement and overseeing the running of whole school projects totaling over £3 million, ensuring outstanding schools are equipped with outstanding experiences and facilities for the students in my responsibility.

I pride myself sending students to top universities to follow their passion and dreams in design, 11 of my 12 last A level students did so.  I am highly experienced in the integration of ICT within teaching and learning, managing whole school windows and IOS ICT systems and developing new technologies for teachers to continue and extend pupil engagement and methods of improving collaboration, communication and assessment for all.

I never stand still in teaching, being a practical specialist I am always on the move in the classroom, a dynamic I want students to embrace, standing still is not an option, you need to always progress, continue to move forward in all walks of life.

I live in Dubai with my family, enjoying all the new opportunities and experiences this brings with old and new friends, immersing ourselves in a new culture, food and travel.  I am excited about the next chapters and look forward to welcoming, students, their parents and staff into the world of design at NAS Dubai
