Orla Derrane

I grew up in Ireland where I completed a degree in Law and European studies. During that course I moved to France to undertake a work placement for a period of eight months which allowed me to further develop my French language skills. After this I decided to pursue a career in teaching as it was something I had always been interested in. I obtained a Postgraduate Certificate in Education through the University of Nottingham. I have been teaching in Dubai for nine years. I am passionate about education and last year completed a Masters in the subject.

My hobbies include playing gaelic football and running. I also take every opportunity to travel and believe experiencing new countries and cultures provides an education in itself.
