GEMS Royal Dubai School - The Mariamma Varkey Award for Inspirational and Outstanding Teaching - November 2020 Winner

“I love teaching in GEMS Royal Dubai School as I constantly have opportunities to meet new families, experience exciting challenges and broaden my professional development.

The rewards of teaching offer me a sense of satisfaction, knowing that I make a difference in children’s lives.  I try my best to ensure my classroom offers a caring, firm and stable environment where each child can realise their potential.

I enjoy getting to know different students and learning about their unique talents and strengths. Establishing a good rapport with my pupils and promoting the use of a growth mindset is so important to me. Using imaginative approaches to teaching and learning is something that I am passionate about so that pupils in my class make continued progress and learn to become empowered citizens of the world.”
