Head of Modern Foreign Language
"My name is Kevin Henry and I am the Head of Year 10 at GEMS Founders school. I am also teaching French and it is now my fourth year at Founders. I grew up in a little village in France just by the Swiss border. I then studied English and Russian literature and civilisation at the University of Strasbourg, where I then did a Master’s in Foreign Languages Didactics. I was only working with adults but felt I would feel more fulfilled working with children. I therefore moved to London for 4 years where I did a PGCE and taught in an East London school. Coming to Dubai and joining GEMS was a big new adventure I needed and I am really happy I did it. I have now followed my year group for three years and feel extremely proud to be accompanying every children from GEMS Founders to a bright future. I am passionate in helping them being curious about the world they live in and making them want to always learn more. I look forward to being part of the success of all students and accompanying them to become the future citizens of the 21st century."
