Head of Mathematics - Early Years
"Hello, my name is Emma Gilmour and I am the head of Maths for Key stage one and Early Years. This my fifth year of teaching and third year teaching here in Dubai. I gained my teaching qualification with QTS at Nottingham Trent University in the UK. Before moving to Dubai I lived in Chester, Cheshire, where I taught for two years in a resource provision for children with complex and moderate learning disabilities.. During this time I taught the UK curriculum to children aged 5 to 11. I was also the leader of physical education. As someone who struggled with maths in school, since becoming a teacher I have always had a keen interest in developing the teaching of maths, and finding new ways to support and challenge learners. I am really looking forward to taking on this role and continuing on our successful journey here at GFS. "
