Hello everyone, my name is Rionach Kelly and I am really excited to be your teacher next year. This will be my seventh year working in the Middle East and I am very proud to call Dubai my second home. Outside of school, I have a passion for Musical Theatre, Performing Arts and anything else creative.
I am particularly interested in using this creative medium to encourage children to express themselves and build confidence in my classroom. I also enjoy outdoor adventures, particularly hiking, scuba diving and skiing. I am a keen traveller and love nothing more than an adventure! As a teacher, I consider myself to be approachable, adaptable and believe a successful classroom is centred around positive relationships with each other. I am looking forward to finding out all about you, seeing all of your unique talents and strengths.
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 second year at Safa Community School and I hope to be forward thinking and innovative as I work alongside your child on their learning journey.
