When I first walked into Al Yasmina Academy I got a feeling that inspirational and great things happened at this school. When I walked through the atrium, I saw student’s artwork that decorated the walls which would not look out of place in the Louvre. I saw magnificent displays of students work surrounding the corridors. I saw students and teachers smiling and enjoying going about their business. From those first moments, I knew that this was a place where I would love to secure a teaching position. 
Luckily, I am going into my third year here at Al Yasmina Academy, where there is a genuine spirit of cooperation and shared goals all revolving around teaching students to be the best possible person they can be, academically and morally. 
Teaching a subject that you love, in an outstanding school, where the staff, students and everyone behind the scenes are amazing, is a dream for all educators. 
The D&T department I work with is unconditionally fantastic in so many ways. As a department we work around the clock to inspire young students to take their first tentative steps towards independent creative thought, we encourage pupils to be resourceful, innovative and enterprising as they solve real and relevant problems. We teach student’s to be consistently aware of the health and safety risks involved from using a pencil sharpener to wielding a brazing torch and a lot more in between and ensure all students use tools and machinery safely. These are yet a few things that we as a team consistently do, day in day out. 
Creativity does not have defined boundaries or limits. What one student can produce in 1 hour may be considerably more imaginative and creative than another can achieve in a month. The instinctive problem-solving aspects of design are in our DNA while maths, science and technology have to be learnt. Because of this, we are all inherently creative; it’s just how it is nurtured and developed in each individual.
