Head of Primary
I am very excited to be introducing myself to you all as Head of Primary. I am from the UK and I have over 24 years of teaching experience in Primary School education and have worked in London and Australia. I have led on Inclusion and EAL which is a passion of mine.
In the UK I have been a Headteacher for over 7 years in a multicultural school and bring a wealth of experience that I believe is an asset to GEMS Cambridge Private International School, Sharjah. I have high standards and expectations for all and will always put the children first. I adhere to the GEMS philosophy of ensuring that children are prepared for the future. I believe this can be achieved through a rounded education; that enables children the independence to think for themselves, problem solve and take risks thus creating a culture that it is ok to make mistakes, as this is all part of the learning journey.
I enjoy working with our parents, as being a parent myself of two boys, I appreciate the importance of positive relationships and working in partnership together.
