Assistant Primary Principal
My name is Charlotte Goode and I am the Assistant Head of Primary at GCS. While I am new to GCS I am not new to the UAE and have been teaching for GEMS Education for the last seven years as a class teacher and within leadership. Before moving to the UAE, I taught at an inner-city school in Coventry in the United Kingdom, where I worked with children from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.
In 2011 I graduated from the University of Warwick with a Bachelor of Arts (with honours) in Early Childhood Studies and then completed my Postgraduate Certificate in Education at Newman University in Birmingham. Since graduating, I have developed a strong belief that every child and every moment matter and that through positive attitudes, high expectations and partnership with parents, the whole child will develop, both academically and socially. I also believe that teaching and learning should be creative, purposeful and challenging and that through a balanced curriculum each child should be equipped with the skills for lifelong learning and this is what I strive to achieve for our children at GCS.
As a member of the Senior Leadership Team, I will have the pleasure of working very closely with the Head of Primary, Ms. Michelle Motley, as well as the rest of the leadership team and class teachers, to ensure that the children at GCS receive an education that enables them to reach their full potential and become the best they can be.
