Like many other teachers, I was heavily inspired by my own English teacher at school who once called me an ‘oxymoron’. His style of teaching is what made me the teacher I am today. However, teaching wasn’t always my end goal in life! My original degree was in Drama and Musical Theatre, but after a short period of teaching dance at my old secondary school and a brief catch up with that very English teacher, I decided to apply for my PGCE in Secondary English at the University of Wolverhampton and never looked back.

About Me

I have now been teaching English for just over three years and love the challenge I face every year in passing on my passion for all things Literature to the students that walk through my classroom door. I recently took on the challenge of leading a group of Year 10 students at the beginning of their GCSE studies as Head of Year 10 and have loved the fast-paced nature of the role after my previous role as Head of House.

I am excited to be starting at Safa British School and can’t wait to hit the ground running next academic year!

I moved to Dubai last year after living in Birmingham for all of my life. In my spare time, I have a plethora of hobbies that I pick up in times of inspiration. My latest hobbies are crochet and sewing! I love learning a new skill and being able to see the end result of my labour.

My Experience

BA (Hons) Drama and Musical Theatre | PGCE in Secondary English

The best moments in my teaching career come from the small conversations with students. As an English teacher this comes in the form of students seeking me out in the day just to tell me about a book that they’ve read recently that has had a massive impact on them. As someone who always has the time to sit down with a good book and a strong cup of tea, having students talk to me about their love of books swells me with pride. To me, it means that I have made an impact..
