I am from East London, UK. I studied Sports at the University of Bedfordshire and completed by Primary PGCE at the University of Greenwich, London.
I started my career in education working as a learning support assistant and sports coach, within secondary schools in London. I then began to work in a primary school, where I enjoyed the different variations of lessons throughout the school’s days and the activities and occasions that are celebrated throughout the academic year. It was from that experience I decided to become a primary school teacher. Eager to keep a foot in sports, I specialised in PE on my PGCE. Upon completing my training year and initial year of teaching in London, I decided to gain international experience and moved to Doha. I spent two years working at a small private school in the city, before moving to Oryx.
My interests are mainly playing and watching sports, particularly Football. In my youth, I played at a good standard of club-level football for Millwall Lionesses, and Leyton Orient. Aside from football, I enjoy travelling and exploring new places, watching films and documentaries, and I am self-confessed coffee enthusiast.
My aim here at OIS is to help guide and nurture the students to reach their full potential. I also want to continue to develop the sporting talent within our school, so our sports teams and school are recognised amongst the best in Qatar.
