Year 5 Lead
Hi, my name is Amanda Richardson and I am from a city called Manchester in England in the United Kingdom. I previously worked in the UK for 6 years as a teacher, working in Years 2, 4 and 5. I have also previously been a Teaching assistant in Foundation Stage, so have a wide range of experiences with different age ranges. I also went travelling around Australia as I love to explore new places! This will be my second year teaching in Dubai and it has been such an inspiring and exciting experience so far!
I enjoy experiencing new cultures, which is why I made the decision to move to Dubai, to be able to immerse myself in the culture and continue my passion of teaching. My philosophy for teaching is to promote a curious and motivated classroom environment where children feel safe, happy and secure. I am passionate about helping children feel engaged, confident and able to take charge of their own learning and becoming successful learners. I am really looking forward to meeting all our Year 3 families and I’m excited about the learning journey we can develop together!
