Year 4 Lead
Hello, my name is Clare O’Keefe and this will be my 4th year of teaching at GEMS Royal Dubai School. I am very excited to be the leader of our fantastic Year 4 team this year! During my time at RDS I have taught in Years 2 and 4 and have also been part of the English leadership team. I am from the UK and have lived in England my whole life.
During my 9 years of teaching, I have enjoyed teaching at 4 different schools and have had experience in teaching all ages from years 1 to 6. I love teaching all subjects across the curriculum; however, I have a passion for English. I have loved developing the Writing Journey at RDS and cannot wait to meet the super writers coming into 4CK. I love to travel and explore new countries and cultures; my favorite destination so far has been South Africa where I got to go on safari and see lots of amazing animals in their natural habitats. Prior to teaching, I spent a year living and working in Australia. I really enjoy living and working in a place as culturally diverse as Dubai and look forward to another year at RDS and meeting all the wonderful students and families that I will be working with.
