Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.

Having spent the last thirteen years in schools across the UAE, I am thrilled and proud to join the SISD community. I have been fortunate to work as a STEAM leader and head of science at international schools in Dubai. My teaching specialism is Chemistry and graduated with a master’s degree in Inorganic Chemistry in 2007.  My teaching philosophy is aligned with IB’s inquiry-based approach coupled with the incorporation of technology, maths, engineering, and art in my science lessons. I strongly subscribe to differentiated learning methodologies in my teaching, ensuring provision of equal opportunities for students of varying academic strengths and learning abilities. Having recently earned a master’s degree in Educational leadership and management from Middlesex University London, I am passionate to help students build their leadership skills through providing a safe environment and opportunities for engaging in reflective and experiential learning.
