Hello everyone, I am so excited to welcome your children to our SCS family and FS2RM. I look forward to working with the children this term and supporting their transition into FS2 together.

About Me

I moved to Dubai 15 years ago and it has been my second home ever since. When I am not teaching, I like to write, paint, practice yoga, play with my cat Coco and explore new adventures in Dubai with my husband and daughter. I am also extremely proud to have published my first children’s book this year.

This is going to be a great year filled with lots of fun learning and I look forward to starting this adventure with you!

My Experience

Having made the decision to change my career from Government Law with a Bachelor of Law degree to teaching, due to my love of working with children, I soon received my Cache Level 3 Diploma in Early Years. I then progressed to achieving my iPGCE for Primary Teaching from the University of East London. For the past 12 years I have worked as an educator in FS1 and FS2 in Dubai. Prior to joining Safa Community School, I taught in a Nursery for four years and then at DESS in the Foundation Stage for five years. This is my third year at SCS and I cannot wait to meet my new FS2 class. In my classroom, we truly become a family! Teaching is a passion and we embark on this wonderful journey together.
