Safety, security, work-life balance, sunshine, great people, great children, supportive parents, world class facilities and most important of all fun. This is what my family and I were hoping for when we decided to move to Abu Dhabi and Aldar Academies seven years ago. It’s a long list! Safe to say, we found all of these things and more. We love living in one of the most progressive cities in the Middle East. 

At Aldar Academies, we have some of the most diverse and wonderful students and faculty. In my classes I have had the pleasure of teaching children from all corners of the globe, from a range of cultures, languages and backgrounds, all working together to achieve our shared vision of excellence, passion, creativity, respect and collaboration. The children I have taught, have taught me so much in return, including how to say simple words and phrases in a number of languages, not least in Arabic. Along with a greater understanding of so many cultures, which I would have not have had an opportunity to learn about otherwise. I will be forever grateful for this. 

A key part of a child’s learning and a teacher’s ability to be truly effective is the support from parents and carers. The support we receive from the parents at Al Yasmina is something that continues to amaze me. I am often asked, ‘What can I do to support my child?’ My answer is always the same, be involved. Ask your children what they have learnt, allow them to follow their passions, encourage them, challenge them and most importantly celebrate the progress and achievements they are making at each stage of their development. 

The past eight years have flown by and my family and I are looking forward to many more.
