Assistant Head Teacher GEMS Wellington International Schoo
I spent the early part of my career leading Drama departments in different schools in the UK before deciding to retrain in the field of SEND. I hold a number of postgraduate qualifications, including Advanced Certificates in Education in SpLD and Autism, the UK National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordination, and the Masters level Certificate in Psychometric Testing, Assessment and Access Arrangements (CPT3A).
I was Senior Leader in the UK before moving to Dubai as a Secondary Head of Inclusion. I quickly become part of the Senior Leadership team, also taking on the Pastoral Care role for Secondary. I am currently in the role of Assistant Head Teacher for whole school Inclusion, and I am proud to say we have achieved outstanding judgements every year. I have recently taken on a new role as GEMS Wellington Director of Inclusion, working with different schools to take Inclusive practice beyond outstanding.
