I have most recently worked at an international school in Germany as the Head of Department for Science and an MYP Science/DP Biology teacher. As an educator, I try to create a safe and welcoming environment where students view mistakes as learning experiences rather than something to be feared. Science education should encourage students to develop inquiry skills, solve authentic problems, and make connections to the real world.
I am an avid fan of football and have been a coach in my previous schools. Furthermore, I am a passionate traveller and global citizen who enjoys visiting countries that enhance my cultural understanding. My wife and I are looking forward to experiencing the new challenges that lay ahead at SISD and in Dubai!
