GEMS Royal Dubai School - The Mariamma Varkey Award for Inspirational and Outstanding Teaching - March 2021 Winner

“It is my very first year here at GEMS Royal Dubai School and it has already been an amazing year full of new adventures and challenges. Every second of my time here has been enjoyable due to the supportive staff, caring parents and incredible children. Fostering a love of learning and encouraging creativity are reasons why I became a teacher and I love to challenge and inspire my children every day!

Having worked in many different year groups, I have adored getting to know the Year 1 children and being part of the dedicated Year 1 team. The children have taught me to be more aspirational and adaptable in my teaching and we have been able to participate in many exciting experiences together. My aspirations for the future are furthering my impact within the school and I look forward to a new role of Year Leader next year.”
