This is my 6th year teaching at Safa Community School and I am very excited to welcome your child to 1SO. This is my second year working in Year 1 and previous to this I spent four years in FS2. I love teaching younger children as they are always eager to learn and explore.
I am married with two children, Izzy who is 3 and joining Safa this year and Georgia who is 6 months. I love spending time with my family and enjoy cooking, gyming and reading.
This is my 12th year in the UAE and I have loved living and working here as I have had the opportunity to travel, try new things and meet people from many different parts of the world. I am from Ireland and I love visiting there every summer, spending time with family in the beautiful countryside and by the beaches.
I graduated in 2006 with a B.Ed in Primary Education with Maths. My first teaching post was in FS2 before taking a year out to travel the world. This gave me a taste of International life and I moved to the UAE gaining experience in both FS2 and Year 1. This year I am looking forward to continuing my Year 1 journey, providing a safe environment where children can explore, investigate and work together to achieve goals. I love to see our little learners grow in confidence and independence throughout the year and I enjoy providing fun, active lessons which provide them with the opportunities to shine.
