Head of Water House
"Hello! My name is Katherine Stephens and I have been part of the GFS family for a year and a half now. I am from Essex, England and am currently in my second year of teaching. I took my first teaching position at GFS, out here in Dubai, and I’m so pleased I did! I have always wanted to travel and see different parts of the world, and teaching has allowed me to do that.
I am a Physical Education teacher, as well as being the Head of Water House. I have always had a huge passion for sports and physical activity, being a very active and competitive person myself. My favourite sport is swimming. I was a competitive swimmer for around 12 years, which meant a lot of early mornings! However, it shaped me into who I am today, and taught me key values such as dedication and perseverance, values that I also encourage our learners to demonstrate at GFS. I am really looking forward to using my competitive and dedicated personality to help Water House thrive this year at GFS. I look forward to working with learners at GFS and building great relationships with them all as we learn and develop together as a family."
