About me

I am currently residing in Muscat in the Dolphin Village, and hold an Omani residency card and driving license. I am a fully trained UK secondary science teacher with experience for over 20 years in very different demographic schools across three countries: the UK; Oman; and New Zealand (NZ). My vocational teaching history covers several Midlands schools in the UK and when I first emigrated to Oman in 2006, I was an emergency supply teacher at the ABA, an IB school. I then emigrated to New Zealand, teaching SEN students in an inclusive mainstream school. So, have enjoyed teaching students from various diverse cultures and nationalities in different educational settings. Now I have emigrated again to the wonderful country of Oman with my husband and wish to continue my teaching vocation. Skill set includes: Curriculum taught: UK GCSE science (AQA, OCR, Cambridge) whole school IB MYP; and secondary science NZ. Specializing in SEN pedagogy. Secondary and Middle school science teacher, ages 8 to 18, Biology specialist. Experience in Geography GCSE, due to my BSc and MSc qualifications. Motivate and inspire academically lower performing students, such as SEN. Proven record of tapping into student psychology and behavioural traits to unlock their full potential by using an individual multimodal approach, supported by pastoral care. Adept in MSOffice e.g. originated PowerPoint lessons ‘Exemplary marking strategies’ my UK Ofsted inspection accolade. Prioritised individual tailor-made planning and performance tracking. Practiced an open-minded approach, to support and collaborate with the team. Invigilated exams: in-house; and external GCSE and A’Levels. Ran extracurricular revision classes during lunch times and after school. Relish challenges, e.g. develop study programs. Dedicated to holistic support and teamwork with colleagues and families. NZ and UK Autistic Society School, extra supervision experience e.g. school buses, lunches, break times, etc. Dependable and flexible as a team player. Practically adept, as have historic industrial experience. Technically competent to prepare my experiments.   Teaching ethos: I feel privileged teaching students and find the vocation most rewarding. My most rewarding role to date was working with profoundly ASD students at the National Autistic Society School, Church Lawton. I believe every individual student should be equipped to achieve their full potential. No student should have a set limit. All individual learners should be able to believe in their aspirations. As a science and SEN teacher/TA, I have endeavoured to provide uniquely diverse lessons, through supportive academic differentiated pedagogy, to facilitate in achieving individual educational goals. My driving ethos is that education should always be an enjoyable, positive, and rewarding experience for every student. Overall, as an educator, I aim to empower every individual student to possess the confidence and skill set to flourish into becoming the best citizen that they can become.
