Sonia Rasib

Year 2 Teacher

I was born and raised in England in West Yorkshire. I studied Culture, Identity and Learning and completed my teacher training straight after, both at the University of Leeds.

My teaching career began in Yorkshire where I had the opportunity to work with a diverse group of children from different cultural backgrounds. I was lucky enough to continue working with such diverse backgrounds when I moved to Qatar in 2017 to teach at a school here.

I am from a family full of teachers, both my sisters and mother all work in a school. My husband and daughter, Aria, live with me here in Qatar.

In my free time, I enjoy doing henna on brides and taking part in sports activities.  I enjoy an active lifestyle and since I am married to a Jiu-Jitsu athlete, we love to participate in sports activities and go to the gym often.

My aim at Oryx is to create an inclusive, stimulating and engaging environment, where children enjoy coming into school every day, through creating strong relationships with everyone within the school community which includes parents, staff and most importantly the students.
