Year 1 Leader
Miss Cunningham is originally from London, England. She began her teaching career after graduating from Canterbury Christchurch University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Primary Education. She then taught in an ‘Outstanding’ primary school in South East London for five years across the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 where she continued to gain an excellent understanding of how to make the classroom an impactful and enjoyable experience for every child.
In 2018, Miss Cunningham made the decision to move to Dubai where she joined GEMS FirstPoint School and has taught in Year 1 for the last two years. During this time, she has taken on the role of Social Studies subject leader and is very excited to start the role of Year 1 leader this year.
Miss Cunningham is passionate about ensuring that every child’s learning journey is one that excites them to come into school each day. She enjoys creating imaginative and exciting learning experiences for the children that they will be eager to share at home with their families. She is excited for the new school year and looks forward to working closely with the children and their families over the next school year.
