Hanaa El Sayed
My name is Hanaa Elsayed. As a GFS founding member since 2016, I am privileged to be an assistant principal; working with students and parents in a broader leadership role.
I hold a BA in education specialising in English and Arabic Arts, as well as post-graduate qualifications in curriculum and methodology. I also have international qualified teacher status and a PGCE in education from Sheffield Hallam University, UK.
Over 17 years ago, my passion for teaching and learning led me to embark on career in education. Since moving to Dubai in 2010, I have held various teaching and leadership positions across primary and secondary schools. Throughout my time at GFS, I have contributed to the quality of teaching and learning as a teacher, head of subject, and Advanced Skills Teacher. Moreover, I have had the privilege of leading the Arabic as a foreign language network in BSME (British schools in the Middle East), enabling me to collaborate with fellow educators and experts for the benefit of all learners.
