I am excited to have the opportunity to welcome your child to 1ED for the academic year 2021-2022 at SCS.
I graduated from Northumbria University, UK where I studied a BA Hons in Early Primary Education. I have lived in Dubai for 9 years and I am excited to be joining the Safa family this year. Whilst living in Dubai I have had the opportunity to travel to lots of destinations, seeing many beautiful places, enjoying new experiences and different cultures. My favourite places in the world I have visited are Kenya, Philippines and Italy. Outside of teaching I love watching sports, mainly rugby and football. I am a big Newcastle United fan and enjoy watching a match when I can. I also have a love for sunshine and a trip to the beach with a nice coffee and a good book is a perfect day to me!
I have been teaching in Foundation Stage and Year 1 for twelve years now and thoroughly enjoy learning alongside the children, providing them with creative, practical activities and seeing them progress throughout the year. I really value a smooth transition from the Foundation Stage into Year 1 and support this by ensuring children feel comfortable and confident in their learning environment, always building upon their skills through exciting and challenging learning opportunities. I encourage children to be inquisitive and to take risks with their learning, developing their independence in a safe and positive environment. I cannot wait to meet you all soon.
