Assistant Head Teacher
I am delighted to introduce myself as the Assistant Head of Primary and FS Lead. I have been an enthusiastic and highly motivated Early Years Teacher for 20 years and I have worked both in the UK and for the past eight years here in Dubai. I graduated with a BA Hons in Early Childhood Studies and Education from Sunderland University followed by a PGCE from The University of Leeds.
I have a strong belief that young children should thoroughly enjoy learning and I understand the importance of allowing children to learn through carefully planned purposeful play activities in a safe and secure environment. By developing children’s confidence and independence skills we are building the foundations to their future learning.
I am excited to be taking on the role of FS lead and being able to inspire and share my passion for the Early Years and make a positive impact on many more lives. Here at GEMS FirstPoint School we teach children to love learning through an inquiry-based ethos where critical thinking and problem solving become natural skills and where children are encouraged to ‘have a go’ at anything allowing for challenge with no ceiling on their ability to succeed.
