I am an Irish teacher and skilled IB professional with experience in a variety of roles in the MYP, DP and CP. My educational background comprises of a Bachelor of Business Studies and a Postgraduate Diploma in Education. I have lived in the UAE since 2010 and I really love the lifestyle here… the weather is certainly a nice change from what we are used to in Ireland! In my previous school I acted as CAS Coordinator for two years and also spent three years as the IBCP and BTEC Coordinator. I have taught Business to many different ages in a range of different curricula. I consider myself a teacher of young people, and it is my responsibility to create a safe learning environment so that the students can prosper. In my opinion, class discussion and dialogue is key for successful learning. I am very excited to join the amazing team at SISD and cannot wait begin the BTEC Business Diploma with the budding entrepreneurs of tomorrow. I also have some exciting ideas for the CAS Programme and look forward to making the DP experience one to remember for all our students.
