Stacey James

Year 1 Lead and Teacher

I am from the city of Manchester, a place that has not only one but two great football teams! I studied at Liverpool Hope University where I gained my degree in the Advanced Study of Early Years and Psychology. I then attended the University of Birmingham to complete my PGCE in Early Years.

I have taught within the Early Years department in the UK and China before coming to Qatar. I have been living in Doha for over five years. The plan of staying for a short time has now become a long-term plan.

I like to travel and experience different food, culture and scenery. My favourite country so far has been Thailand, it was amazing. I like to go for long walks along the Corniche and attend kickboxing classes to keep fit. I love watching films with friends and dancing.

The staff, at Oryx, are so welcoming and provide a great community that is inclusive, which is something that is very special in Doha. I enjoy meeting my student's parents and strengthening our relationship, which lays the foundation to provide a great and secure environment that enables our children to reach their full potential.
