Senior Teaching & Learning Coach
As a lifelong learner I am cognisant of the power education has to change lives, which makes me passionate about educating others. Prior to joining GEMS Westminster School, Sharjah, I worked at the University of Northampton as Senior Lecturer in Education and Project Manager for Higher Level Teaching Assistant as part of the National Assessment Board in United Kingdom.
I have over 20 years’ experience working in Secondary and all through education. During this time, I served as Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher, Head of Department, Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL), SENCo and Teaching and Learning Lead with responsibility for good to outstanding teaching. These roles enabled me to work with a wide range of students and stakeholders across the Caribbean and the United Kingdom. I have been part of leadership teams that have gained outstanding ratings in inspection and I gained National recognition in the Caribbean for my work in Education, Youth and Culture. I have also served on school boards with a focus on raising aspiration and parent engagement. My area of expertise is in school accountability and standards in education, with a passion for Teaching and Learning. You will find that I am approachable and supportive, driven by a student-centered approach, designed to have the students at the heart of their learning.
I am delighted to have been granted the opportunity to join the committed team at GEMS Westminster School, Sharjah from September 2021, as the Teaching and Learning Coach.
