Year 1 Lead

Hello! Firstly, a warm welcome to you and your little one into Year 1.

I am from England and have been teaching for eight years, with half of that time spent at RDS. Early learning is my passion, so I am looking forward to another exciting year as the Year 1 team leader. I have taught in the UK, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. I really enjoy living here! I am an approachable and enthusiastic teacher and I genuinely believe Year 1 is the best place to be! My hobbies include travel, reading (I love getting lost in a good book at the beach!) and participating in step classes, I love the choreography and dancing! I have a keen interest in fitness and health and used to be a class fitness instructor as well as a class teacher I strive to make Year 1 the exciting foundation of primary education. My personal philosophy is to promote a curiosity for learning and instill an attitude of enjoyment and motivation to learn throughout school life. By providing a happy and engaging classroom, where all children lead their own learning, I believe each child can feel safe and become confident learners.
