Niamh Burke

EAL Teacher

I am from beautiful Galway, on the west of Ireland. I studied Fine Art at Galway University and then completed a PGCE in Primary Education shortly after. My love of travelling brought me to Qatar over 13 years ago, where I have been a Primary class teacher, Head of Primary at an International British curriculum school and an EAL teacher.

I have two wonderful sons who are 3 and 4 months old. When they don’t take up all my time, I enjoy painting, cooking and singing. Since living in Qatar, I have had the opportunity to travel to many countries I could only have dreamed about back home.

By working in Oryx, I wish to continue to teach and deliver the curriculum at a high standard. I wish to contribute positivity to the ethos of Oryx and watch my students flourish and grow into outstanding global citizens. I believe learning should always be fun and engaging and I aim to continue to provide lessons where children are happy, inspired and comfortable in their surroundings. Seeing the children happy, is extremely rewarding and why I love being a teacher.
