Assistant Principal (Head of Inclusion)
I am delighted to introduce myself as Head of Inclusion here at the prestigious GEMS Winchester School, Fujairah. I have been working with students with additional learning needs for more than 20 years. I believe every learner is unique and is entitled to an education that meets their needs as an individual so that they can become the best version of themselves for the future. During my career, I have worked in four International School settings including Portugal, Thailand, Kenya and the UAE. This has provided me with a wealth of experience in teaching pupils whose first language isn't English and has supported my insights in developing strategies that support International students who may have gaps in their education due to relocation.
13 years of my teaching experience and training as Special Educational Needs Coordinator have been in the UK, giving me the most up to date knowledge and understanding of state-of-the-art approaches for supporting our students of determination. It is my honor to enable our pupils for whom learning can sometimes be a challenge to succeed, as well as ensuring that all of our pupils fulfill their highest potential here at WSF.
