Head of Lower School
I am currently the Head of Lower School at GEMS Wellington International School, progressing from my previous role as Deputy Headteacher, responsible for Learning and Teaching across the Lower and Middle School. During my six-year tenure in Dubai, I have held the posts of Head of House, Head of Year, Assistant Headteacher and also Deputy Headteacher of a 3-18 World IB School before returning to GEMS.
For a large part of my teaching career, I have been involved in school improvement, with a particular focus on raising standards in Learning, Teaching and Assessment practices within schools requiring rapid change and progress where, I acted as a lead and advisory teacher for Maths, Phonics and EAL. I am also currently working with the High-Performance Learning Program both at WIS and across other GEMS schools where I lead and advise Teachers and Leaders in developing a ‘Performance Mindset’ and realizing the potential of all students.
