00 - 01
Originally trained as a Graphic Designer, my transition into teaching began 12 years ago whilst working at a Further Education College in the UK.
I completed my teacher training and soon realised how satisfying it was to teach. After spending eight years in Abu Dhabi, I am excited to have joined DBS to teach Art and Graphics to KS3, KS4 and KS5 students. My passion and enthusiasm for the subjects will hopefully inspire students to produce work they can be proud to call their own. Apart from teaching, I have a keen interest in European Medieval history, (particularly the Tudor period) and would love to be involved in a re-enactment at some stage! I also enjoy leaning about diverse cultures and customs – something that I hope to continue through meeting new people at DBS and by taking the time to explore Dubai and beyond.
BEST MOMENT IN TEACHING
Too many to write about! Teaching has been, and continues to be, rewarding on so many levels, whether I am teaching art to children with special educational needs or supporting students with career pathways or writing personal statements and supporting with university applications. It is incredibly gratifying. Nurturing students to become the best versions of themselves and hearing about their successes after they leave makes teaching even more worthwhile!
