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.
Year 1 Teacher (OCT request)
Year 1B Class Teacher
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 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.

I have taught in Scotland for 5 years and Qatar for 3 years, in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
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 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.
