I am very excited about joining Swiss International Scientific School this academic year, an IB school with a good reputation in Dubai. I love everything about teaching students studying the IB curriculum, in particular the way it develops lifelong learners prepared for university and life beyond the school walls.
I’ve been working in education for the last 12 years teaching English in secondary school, and my experience has been in both U.K. and Dubai schools. Most of my career has been in the Middle East – a place that has become my second home.
I love seeing students progress further than they ever thought was possible; it gives me such satisfaction as a teacher. When students return to visit the school from university telling me all about their new adventures, it makes me feel so proud to see how they have matured into independent young adults.
Outside of the classroom, I have a passion for fitness and a background in performing arts. If I am not teaching a class at school, you will find me lifting weights at Barry’s Bootcamp: my favourite place to work out.
When I am back in my hometown, London, I love spending time with my family and friends and cannot wait for another new role as an Auntie this year!
