Helene Costacalde

As a dedicated and passionate teacher, I am committed to what I regard as my vocation. I believe education has the power to transform lives. I wish to give the children in my care an outstanding educational journey that inspires, motivates and nurtures self-worth and confidence. Born in Paris and raised in Ireland, I studied Music at Trinity College Dublin before discovering my love of teaching and embarking on a teacher training postgraduate degree. I taught in Ireland and London before making the exciting move to Dubai in 2015. I thoroughly enjoy working here in the thriving international setting and this wonderful bilingual community in SISD.

During my free time I enjoy traveling and experiencing different cultures, practicing yoga, swimming, cycling and running. I set myself high standards and embrace challenge, hard work, new experiences and responsibilities. Through teaching, I wish to nurture, in the children under my care, a sense of wonder and excitement about the world around us and encourage them to reach for the stars in all that they do.
