My name is Erin Christie and I am from Glasgow, Scotland. I have been living in Dubai and teaching at Safa Community School since 2017.
One of the things I love about living in Dubai is the diverse range of nationalities and cultures that I am privileged to work with and learn from on a daily basis. I also love celebrating my Scottish roots which is why International Day is one of my favourite days at Safa. I am a friendly, caring person and love meeting new people. I ensure to put the students in my class’ well-being and needs at the forefront of everything I do and aim to create a positive learning environment where children feel nurtured, challenged and excited in their learning.
In 2016 I graduated from the University of Strathclyde in Scotland with my PGCE in Primary Education. I started in Safa in 2017 and I am excited to be starting the new academic year here. I previously taught in Year 2 for five years and moved into Year 3 in 2022. I am excited for my second year in Year 3 and to continue my role as a Curriculum Leader for English. I am extremely ‘Proud to be Purple’!
