Year 7 Teacher
Year 1 Teacher (OCT request)
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 taught in Scotland for 5 years and Qatar for 3 years, in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
My name is Claire Ross and I am from Ireland.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art and a Post Graduate Diploma in Primary Education.
I am one of two teachers in Year One and I look forward to yet another year teaching in such a diverse and vibrant school that is DBS Wakra.
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 2B 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 3nd 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.
I am currently in my fifth year of teaching and my third year at DBS Wakra. I trained as a teacher at Winchester University in Hampshire in the UK. I then taught in Portsmouth for two years before making the decision to move to Qatar. 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 11th year of teaching having studied for four years at a prestigious teacher training college in the UK. I completed seven years in the UK teaching school years 1,2,3,4. I was also a subject leader in this time for science, PE, Design Technology and Phonics. I then moved to Doha British School Al Wakra in 2014 and helped set up the school. I taught in Year 2 for two years becoming Head of Maths. I then moved to Year 5 and took on Head of Learning Support.
I am now Assistant Head, Leader of Key Stage 2 and a Year 4 Classroom teacher. I'm very proud to be a member of DBS especially as we keep moving from strength to strength and improving ourselves to become one of Qatar's very best educational establishments.

Prior to teaching at DBS, I worked as teacher of Arabic and Islamic Studies here in Qatar for 2 Years. I have had the pleasure of working for DBS since September 2015. My role is supporting my student's learning in Arabic and Islamic Studies and to develop the students levels to the best. I teach Arabic and Islamic Studies in KS1 to KS3, enjoying the experience of showing a new language and culture to the children.
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.
BA Hons in Early Years Education, PGCE, NQT.
I am originally from Barcelona, Spain. In 2005 I moved to the UK where I completed a National BTEC in Early Years, a degree in Education Studies and PGCE. In England I gained experience working in different settings and in 2012 I moved to Qatar to develop my career. In Qatar I worked as a Year 1, Year 2 teacher and Year Leader. Doha British School gave me an amazing opportunity to teach Spanish across Pre-school up to Year 6 which matches my expectation in career development.
