Summary

My resume will showcase my career success and sound commitment to providing students with excellence in education. These past three years teaching at the Emirates National School in Abu Dhabi, UAE has expanded my teaching repertoire in content as well as contexts. I have trained and taught International Baccalaureate (IB) courses, and been teaching Grades 10-12 Business in UAE for the past three years, prior to which I was teaching Business, Economics, and Accounting in Canada for three years. Last year, I was recruited to design my own DP History course, which was implemented as a pilot in the 2016 academic year. The students I teach are mainly Emirati and I have felt privileged to be able to learn about their culture and diverse needs. My teaching style is centred on building a learning community, where individuals are given opportunities to inquire and explore themselves and their place within the community, and the world. I provide structure with enough flexibility to accommodate diverse students’ needs and learning styles.

Prior to becoming an educator, I worked in the Banking industry and Publishing industry at prestigious companies like TD Canada Trust, Simon & Schuster, a publishing firm, as well as non-profit organizations such as SHIP and ITREB UK and Canada. I bring to my business classes experiences from my banking jobs in customer service, financial advise, fraud analysis, as well as financial analyst experience in the publishing sector. Further, I have opened two business of my own in Canada in the past 10 years, which allow me to bring real life business experiences into the classroom.
