B. Comm, PGCE
Having completed my B.Comm, I received my PGCE and returned to Ireland where I taught in two growing multi-denominational schools.
After a number of years, I wanted to further develop my skills in meeting the needs of all children and completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Special Education. This area sparked further interest where I undertook a Masters in Education along with a Postgraduate Certificate in The Principles of Art Therapy.
Here in Doha British School, I am a Reception teacher, where I enjoy applying my skills to create a fun, dynamic and happy learning environment to engage my students.
I have six years experience teaching in the UK and two years in Doha. I have taught in key Stages 1 and 2. I have a B.A. Hons degree in Journalism and a Postgraduate Diploma in Primary Education. This year I am teaching Year 1.
I am also the Key Stage 1 English Leader at DBS Wakra, making sure that the school continues to develop innovative and effective ways of delivering this subject whilst ensuring that all children make progress.
BA Hons Primary Education with Art and Design
I have taught for 6 years in the UK and am beginning my 4th year of teaching in Qatar. The majority of my teaching experience is in Key Stage 1 and I am currently the Key Stage 1 Leader here at DBS Wakra. As well as my role, I also teach Year 2D Chihuahua class. I feel proud to be part of such a fantastic school and it has been amazing to see the progress the children have made in Key Stage 1 over the past 2 years.
I am now into my sixth year of teaching and this is my third at DBS Wakra. I have taught in a variety of schools in the UK from Outer London to Hampshire. I have experienced teaching in all of the years in KS2 as well as Year 1. This year I am broadening my experience as a teacher by moving to Year 2. I am Head of Science which has continued to grow over the last two years. Last year saw the launch of Science week which was a huge success and all the children thoroughly enjoyed their activities. I am looking forward to what will happen in Science this year. It is successes like these that drive me as a person, from the little achievements of each day, to the whole progress each child makes each year.
BA Hons Primary and Secondary teaching with Modern Languages
I am now into my sixth year of teaching, this is my first year at DBS Wakra. I have experience across KS1, KS2 and Secondary. Before coming to Qatar I was also A SENCo which has given me a great insight to developing the whole child and ensuring all needs are catered for. I endeavor to pass on my love for learning. This year I will be in year 3. I look forward to a great year ahead with lots of learning and new challenges, ensuring a smooth transition into KS2.
This is my 5th year of teaching and currently my 2nd year in DBS Wakra. I trained as a teacher at Liverpool Hope University in the UK and taught in England for a year. I then moved home to Ireland to teach for two more years before moving to Qatar. I enjoy having a hands on and active approach to teaching. Also, I believe it is extremely important to be flexible and use different approaches and strategies to suit individual children’s needs.
B.A. Hons Primary Education.
I am now in my 4th year of teaching, with this being my 3rd year at DBS Wakra. I have gained most of my teaching experience through KS1, however this year I am widening my experience by moving to KS2 with a class of Year 4 children. I strive to be flexible in my teaching, incorporating different approaches which will endeavor to benefit each child as an individual learner.
I am also the ICT leader throughout the school and I am continuously working to ensure that children have exposure to the digital world that we live in, and are able to use these skills progressively throughout the school.
I am currently in my fourth year of teaching and my second year at DBS Wakra. I have experience teaching in all year groups in Key Stage 1 and 2 and I am currently teaching in Year 4 with a determined group of children. Sports are a very important part of my life and I enjoy an array of different sports which I am looking forward to sharing with the children. I understand that every child has a different learning style and therefore realise the importance of a variety of teaching techniques to enable them to reach their full potential.
I am currently in my second year of teaching Year 5 at DBS Wakra. Before working at DBS, I qualified with a B.Ed Primary Honours Degree in Scotland where I completed my first year of teaching. I have had the opportunity to teach all year groups however the majority of my experience is in upper KS2. I believe that every child is an individual and understand that children enjoy learning in different ways therefore I strive to incorporate a variety of teaching strategies in every lesson to ensure that each child is given the chance to reach their full potential.
I am currently in my third year at DBS Wakra and have just moved into Year 5, previously having been a Year 2 teacher. I am also the Head of Mathematics and enjoy seeing the changes that are occurring through the development of our rigorous, fun and challenging Mathematics Curriculum. I love being a teacher. Seeing students achieve, progress and challenge themselves on a daily basis is simply the best.
B.A Hons History and International Relations and PGCE Primary education
I have been teaching for six years now both in Key Stage 1 and 2, in the UK and Qatar. I am the Key stage 2 leader and responsible for the oversight of behaviour for Learning, teaching and learning and progress of all children in this phase. I also teach class 6B, who will be guided through their final year of primary education.
BSc Hons Sports Development with Physical Education, FA Youth Award & Level 2 Coaching Award
I am delighted to say I have been teaching PE at Doha British School since September 2016. I teach across the whole school at Al Wakra from Early Years to Key Stage 2. This enables me to work with a range of age groups and abilities. This necessitates my use of different teaching styles to meet the requirements of each age range, to ensure the pupils are gaining the most possible from their PE lessons. My ambition is to ignite a passion in pupils to participate in lifelong sport alongside their learning, through extra-curricular activities or through core PE.
