As a chemistry teacher of course I have to say the experiments are some of the best moments! Planning and carrying out investigations are an excellent way to expand our knowledge and have a little fun in the lab!

About Me

I am originally from North Wales in the United Kingdom and was very fortunate to live a short distance from the beautiful mountains and beaches. Outside of school, my hobbies include exploring new landscapes and travelling.As a keen musician, I have performed in a variety of venues around my local area for various events and charities.In 2018 I built my own home studio to practice my skills and to produce songs that I had written and performed. I have produced music for bands in a professional studio.I am an avid reader, enjoying the works of Stephen King and J.R.R Tolkein. I also enjoy working on my health and fitness through weight-training.

My Experience

BSC Chemistry

I was very lucky to have been inspired by my amazing chemistry teacher in secondary school, and wanted to teach science ever since! After completing my degree in chemistry at Bangor University in Wales, I was fortunate to begin my teaching career in my local high school. I moved to Dubai with my husband in 2020 during the height of the pandemic and haven’t looked back since.
