Head of Year 12
I am originally from a small coastal town in Northern Ireland where my early interest in teaching began through sports coaching, summer schemes and involvement with a variety of youth schemes.
I spent 4 years studying Business Management at Queens University Belfast before completing my PGCE in Secondary Education with Outstanding. Having undertaken a number of roles in education both in Northern Ireland and the UK since 2017 I have thoroughly enjoyed the transition to teaching in Dubai and am thrilled to be supporting and working with the students of Year 12 as they begin their KS5 journey.
I am passionate about providing all students with a positive and unforgettable school experience. I enjoy celebrating student achievements and strives to maintain high levels of motivation both inside and outside of the classroom. My vision for Year 12 this year is to, “create a group of self-believers who are resilient and adaptive to any situation”, as I believe strongly in developing students both academically and pastorally.
During my spare time I enjoy participating in variety of sports and travelling to new places. I particularly enjoys challenging myself through CrossFit workouts and spending time dusting the cobwebs off the guitar.
Finally, I am thrilled to welcome all new and retuning students to Year 12 and look forward to getting to know both parents and students on an individual basis.
