Jessica Edwards

Head of Year 9

I joined GEMS Wellington International School in January 2022 as a Spanish and Italian Teacher and I am delighted to be entering my fourth year of teaching in Dubai as Head of Year 9. I feel very proud to be a part of and work alongside such a wonderful, multicultural community of students, parents and staff.

My commitment and enthusiasm for the holistic growth and wellbeing of every child is at the heart of my reason for teaching. I feel strongly about the need for students to feel safe and encouraged to not only take responsibility for their own high standards of learning and behaviour, but to also have an opportunity to lead, enthuse and collaborate with their peers to develop themselves as they transition into young adults.  

Another true passion of mine is languages, and of the ability to communicate across cultures. After growing up and completing my Secondary Education in Spain, and having spent a year working in a school in Italy, I graduated from the University of Portsmouth in Applied Languages in Spanish and Italian before starting my career as an MFL teacher. The fact I am able to share this passion with others and to support my Year Group in their own personal growth gives me great fulfillment.
