Hannah Hepworth-Smith

I was born in Nottingham in the UK, I am one the eldest of one four children and my Mother is certainly my inspiration when it comes to education. I earned a B.Ed in Primary education with Arts. I have now been teaching for 18 years, which began in the UK and then moved to Adu Dhabi in 2015. I became head of Foundation Stage Two and managed to get the team to ‘Outstanding’ within in a couple of years. Dubai was my next adventure where I become Head of EYFS. I am ambitious and a driven leader who puts the children and staff welfare at the heart of my philosophy. It is my belief that all children should be able to develop not only academically but also morally and socially, while celebrating individuality through a creative and inspiring environment; striving to nurture well-rounded human beings. I have a wide network of friends and social contacts, and also enjoy spending time with my wonderful family. Travel is a particular passion of mine, and I have enjoyed exploring a multitude of different places and cultures whilst based in the Middle East. I am also a keen gym person who plays netball in a local team whenever I have time. My goal at SISD is to be energetic enthusiastic leader and teacher who takes great pride in creating inspiring, orderly and calm teaching and learning environments. I am naturally creative and thoroughly enjoy making interesting, dynamic changes within the learning environments to ensure children have the opportunity to thrive, develop and become independent learners.
