Lucy Heathcote

I am a British teacher who grew up in Yorkshire, England, where I graduated in 2015 with a degree for Primary Education before making the move to Dubai in 2017. From a young age, and encouraged by my own teachers, I noticed I had an innate desire to care for and inspire others which fueled a strong passion for teaching.

With six years teaching experience, my philosophy for education has become clear: a child who feels happy, safe and valued is a child most able to reach their highest potential. My primary concern is to recognise my students as unique individuals with different strengths, quirks, anxieties and enthusiasms to ensure I can make them feel welcome, motivated and ready to learn.

I am excited to put this into practice with the students at SISD and watch them flourish not just academically, but socially and emotionally too, helping them create the same fond memories I have of my own.
