Aoife McHugh

Year 9 Leader

I have been a member of the FPS Mathematics department since my move to Dubai in 2017.
I grew up in the West of Ireland and graduated from the National University of Ireland Galway with an Honors Degree in Mathematics and Education. After graduating I moved to the UK where I taught for a year before moving to Dubai.

I am a passionate teacher, who strives to create a holistic, positive learning environment that caters for the individual needs of each student in my care. As part of my role as key stage 3 coordinator for Maths I work closely with all teachers within the Maths department to ensure that they work together to help each and every student strive to their full potential.
On joining FPS I began my pastoral journey as a year 7 form tutor. I was privileged to support this group throughout their journey until the end of year 10, when I was successful in securing a head of year role. My vision for my year group can be seen in all areas of the tutor programme for year 9.

‘Everyone within this year group is accountable for building a supportive, encouraging, and caring environment.
Together we make everyone feel appreciated and valued.  Mistakes are to be discussed so that we can all learn from one another.’
