I am very excited about joining SISD . As I know i have joined a brilliant school. My name is Jenny Mortlock. I am a dedicated and passionate practitioner , with experience of teaching in the UK and UAE.
My past roles, responsibilities and experiences as Head of Science Faculty, whole school Lead Teacher for Teacher and Learning (T&L) and AQA Physics Examiner, have enabled me to develop as a dynamic and highly capable teacher. With a proven track record of consistently achieving high results for my students and graded as an Outstanding Teacher by Ofsted in England. I am currently studying a Master in Teaching and Learning and anticipate completing this in 2022, with only my dissertation module left to complete.
I will undertake a role in the classroom that is actively involved in harnessing and developing the unique qualities of students at SISD. This can facilitate raising achievement and ensuring students have the skills and self-confidence needed for further education, careers, and their personal endeavours. I passionately believe learning is when students are enthused and own their learning and teaching is dynamic. During my time at SISD, I will deliver science education creating a rich learning environment where students will be encouraged to become enquirers in order to gain the skills necessary to conduct research and show independence in learning, to think critically in order to approach complex problems, and make reasoned, ethical decisions, and most of all, to be reflective. This enables students to assess and understand their strengths and limitations in order to support their learning and personal endeavours.
I am also passionate about science. I believe it is impossible not to connect with science. Looking up at the stars at night and contemplating the infinite possibilities is astounding. The magnificence of the natural world is science at its finest. With the universe constantly expanding and becoming larger every second, science never fails to feed inquisitiveness and a hunger to learn, develop and explore. The immense and complex world that we inhabit is ever evolving thanks to advances in technology, medicine and science in general. Science is our future present and past.
I look forward to working with you and your child in the year ahead and the educational journey we are about to take. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any assistance, no matter how big or small. It is my job to ensure your child has a happy experience at school, feels safe and will have the opportunities to reach their full potential. I believe communication between parents; students and I will be an important ingredient in facilitating this.
I am a mother of two energetic boys and I am married to Daniel, whom also has a wealth of teaching experience internationally and is Head of Middle School- Curriculum lead in a School in Dubai. We are happy in Dubai and love enjoying all Dubai has to offer us a family.
