Paige Small

Foundation Stage 2 Teacher

I was born in the North-East of England and grew up in a small town called Marske-by-the-Sea. After leaving school, I completed a BTEC in Childcare at College, which gave me the relevant qualifications to go ahead and start my Early Years Education and Training BA Hons Degree at Teesside University.

I started my career in my home town, working in different primary schools whilst completing my degree. After completing my degree, I was fortunate to get a job I loved and worked in Early Years for a school in Middlesbrough, with an amazing team, and gained a large amount of experience and knowledge.

I moved to Qatar in 2017, and started my new adventure and experience in Doha as an Early Years teacher at an International school and have been living here and enjoying life ever since.

I have a big family that still live in the UK, my father has always travelled for work and even spent many years working in Qatar as I was growing up. He was part of my inspiration to travel for work and see the world outside my home.

My main interests are travelling, during the holidays I like to explore the countries around me. While here in Qatar, I enjoy spending my weekends at the beach and exploring Doha.

My aim here at Orxy is to contribute towards creating a positive learning environment for children, where they feel safe and happy and have the confidence to be who they are and thrive in all areas.
