I understand the importance of making learning fun and enjoyable as well as ensuring it caters for all learners. I am looking forward to working collaboratively with the children, parents and staff to develop the social, emotional and intellectual wellbeing of the children in Year 4 and to ensure they have engaging and rewarding learning experiences at Safa British School.
I am from the city of Belfast in the North of Ireland. I graduated from St Mary’s University College in 2012 with first class honours in Bachelor of Education. During my time in St Mary’s, I availed of every opportunity to teach and work abroad, completing an Erasmus course in the Netherlands and working with children during the Summers in America.
Following university, I travelled to Qatar where I completed my NQT year. I thoroughly enjoyed working in enriched and diverse environments. I was eager to embrace new circumstances and unexpected challenges which made my decision to move to Dubai an easy one. I have been in Dubai since 2015 and have had experience in teaching in outstanding schools in both Ireland and in Dubai.
This will be my fifth year working as a teacher in Safa British School and my third year as Head of Maths. Being part of the Safa family, is like no other. SBS radiates a friendly, positive atmosphere that promotes the well-being of students and staff alike.
