Children not only learn, but teach us how to be better teachers.

Hi, I’m Rachel, born in London, England and lived there until I moved to Ras Al Khaimah in 2017. I have 3 brothers. I studied in London completing a Psychology degree in 2012 and then completed my PGCE 2015. I have a specialism in Early Years and have taught since 2015. I wanted to become a teacher so that I could be a part of the early experiences and learning children go through between ages 3-5. I think these years are where we learn our principles as humans and develop our ideas the most.

I love cooking and puzzles.

I am extremely excited to join SISD because of the IB curriculum and developing my personal knowledge and skills with the curriculum. The diversity of children and staff is exciting to be apart of going forward.

My vision is to engage, challenge and excite young learners so that they get the best out of school to become life long learners .
