Year 3 Lead
Hello, I am Aimee Cooper and this is my 5th year of teaching at GEMS Royal Dubai School. I am so excited to be in Year 3 this and that I get to be the year leader alongside an incredible team. During my time at RDS, I have taught in Year 1 and also spent some time in FS. I am originally from the UK and lived there my whole life before moving to Dubai.
During my 7 years of teaching, I have had experience of teaching a range of year groups from FS to Year 6! In my classroom, I strive to ensure that every child has the skills to tackle challenges, take risks with their learning and persevere to reach their aspirations, which in turn enables them to become confident and independent learners. I love teaching all subjects across the curriculum; however, I enjoy Maths and the discussions the children bring particularly with reasoning and problem solving activities.
When I am not teaching, I thoroughly enjoy taking part and watching sport. Netball is my favourite and is something I have played since I was at primary school myself. I also love to travel and explore new countries; my favourite destination so far has been Vietnam where I learnt a lot about their culture and history as well as enjoying the beautiful sights. I am very lucky to be working at RDS and being part of so many different learning journeys!
