My name is Rionach Kelly and I am delighted to be your teacher this year. I have lived and worked in the Middle East for eight years and I am very proud to call Dubai my second home, a place full of exciting challenges and experiences.
I have a huge interest in performance and singing. I am particularly interested in using this creative medium to encourage children to express themselves and build confidence in my classroom. I love outdoor activities particularly hiking in the UAE , scuba diving and skiing. I am a keen traveller and love nothing more than an adventure! I consider myself to be an approachable, creative and caring teacher who wants every child to enjoy coming to school everyday with a love of learning.
I graduated from Queen’s University, Belfast in 2014 with a Bachelor of Education. Since then, I have been fortunate to teach Key Stage Two children in a variety of places such as Ireland, Belgium, London, Qatar and Dubai. My teaching philosophy is centred around my pupils being excited to come to school, engaged in their learning and aware of their potential for the future. I am looking forward to embarking on my third year at Safa Community School and I hope to be forward thinking and innovative as I work alongside your child on their learning journey.
