I was born and raised in a small town near Windsor in Berkshire. I was exceptionally fortunate to attend a high performing state secondary school and have fond memories and lifelong friendships from this time.

I was born and raised in a small town near Windsor in Berkshire. I was exceptionally fortunate to attend a high performing state secondary school and have fond memories and lifelong friendships from this time. It was because of my secondary school experience that I decided to become a teacher once completing my Economics degree at The University of Sheffield.  I completed a PGCE in Mathematics via the Teach First Leadership Development Programme at Sheffield Hallam University in 2013 and have taught in West Yorkshire for the past 6 years.

I have worked in three schools and gained extensive experience in teaching pupils across all key stages and from a wide range of backgrounds. I have held several leadership positions during my career, notably before moving to NAS I was the head of Key Stage 3 and Teaching and Learning in Mathematics. I am dedicated to continually improving my practice in order to provide the highest quality teaching for my pupils, enabling pupils to make outstanding progress. It was for this reason that I chose to emigrate to Dubai and work at NAS as I wanted to gain the opportunity to work within a visionary school that not only priorities individual pupil progress, but also prioritises cultivating pupils’ creative interest and talents to ensure a holistic approach to education. 

I am a passionate and energetic teacher who works relentlessly to enable each child to fulfill their potential. I truly believe teaching is the most rewarding and fulfilling career and consider myself very fortunate to enjoy going to work each day. I relish the opportunity to build relationships with pupils outside the classroom and have experience in leading Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, international trips and outwards bounds trips. I am a competitive Personal Tutor and aim to get as involved in school life as possible.

Outside of school I enjoy keeping fit, traveling and am an avid reader. I enjoy a wide range of literature from thrillers and true crime, to classics and of course Harry Potter.
