Grade 4 Leader
Ms. Amy is originally from Toronto, Canada but has been living internationally for over 20 years, including England, Hong Kong and Singapore. Five years ago Ms. Amy moved to Dubai with her family, and her children are now in the third year at GIS. Ms. Amy has a BA in History and a Post Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning. She is passionate about the IB inquiry approach to concept based learning. One of the main reasons that she teaches is the reward she gets when seeing a child realise they have reached the place they have been trying to get to – the moment it clicks. Seeing her students exceed their own expectations, discover new concepts, skills and talents and to share all those awesome, funny, frustrating, interesting, loud, exhausting, rewarding moments with them is the reason why Ms. Amy teaches.
