Jennifer Kelly

PE Teacher

I am from Scotland – Ayrshire to be specific. The same place as Robert Burns and some of the best golf courses in the world!

I studied an HNC after Secondary school in ‘Sport and Recreational management’, then pursued my love for teaching PE. I graduated from Edinburgh University with an honors degree and have taught mostly in Scotland since 2001. It is a privilege to now work for Oryx International.

I have a strong work ethic and like to be busy and challenge myself in my work. I love teaching sport especially swimming and gymnastics. My past experience to date has taken me to various teaching positions, such as a secondary teacher of PE, a Principal Teacher of PE, and a Deputy Head Teacher.

My family mean the world to me, I have a fabulous husband and we have two incredible children. The memories we will now make in Qatar will be treasured forever. We are all very active and like to keep healthy as well as keep our minds strong.

I believe that if it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you. I try to remind myself of that in my daily routine. I enjoy playing and watching most sports and keeping fit and healthy is very important to me. I like to up-cycle garden and house projects, I also enjoy reading and love animals. However, my favourite thing is spending time with friends and family in either adventurous trips or simply just spending quality time together.

I am very passionate about my job and hope to be able to bring inspiration and enjoyment to others. I want to be able to engage and support children through a relationship of high expectations and mutual trust. Together we are on a journey of discovery, success, and inquisitiveness.
