Since I was a young girl, I knew I wanted to grow up and become a teacher. Growing up in Scotland, I always wanted to move to a hot country (and get away from the cold and rain), so when the opportunity came up to move to Dubai and teach at DBS, it felt like a dream come true! This year will be my third year of teaching and I am excited to be spending it in KS1 again. I love working with children of this age due to their enthusiasm and love for learning. In my free time, I enjoy spending time in the sun, going to the gym, swimming, reading (especially Jodi Picoult books!) and socialising with my friends. I’m looking forward to the new experiences that I will have in Dubai next year and making lots of new friends! Best Moment In Teaching I have been lucky enough in my teaching career so far to have very supportive parents who highlight the positive relationships that I have developed with their children. I think it is very rewarding and heart-warming to hear from the parents of the children you teach that their child is happy, inspired and enjoys coming to school. I love hearing that children in my class also want to become teachers as this really highlights to me the impact you can have on their dreams without realising!
