I am a passionate enthusiastic and driven Art teacher. I am incredibly excited to join the team at NACIS and apply the skills and knowledge of Chinese education I have gained teaching in Shanghai for the past three years. I have a great love for my profession that is apparent in the work my students produce. I set high standards and attainment levels, but above all the most important aspect to my classroom environment is freedom of expression and development of intellectual character.
My name is Charlotte Moore and I am currently working at Nord Anglia International School Al Khor in Qatar, the Middle East. I have taught at NAISAK since 2012. While here, I spent the first two years of my career as a Year 2 class teacher, preparing children for the SATs exams. Following this, I took the opportunity to move into a leadership role as Foundation Stage Leader, overseeing the teaching and learning across Pre-school, Reception and Year 1. In the first year of my role, I also taught Literacy to EAL students across the Foundation Stage.
Having started my career at Nord Anglia International School Al Khor, under Mr Graves and Mrs Graves’ leadership, I know that the prospect of being involved in the start-up of a new dual curriculum school offers exciting opportunities to develop forward thinking ideas in education and will give me the opportunity to work in a school that is delivering a curriculum that supports both local culture and international opportunities for its students. I also understand the context of working for a newly established school where constant growth and change occur.
Living in the Middle East has given me many opportunities to travel, which is also one of my passions. Over the last few years, I have travelled to many countries across the world, including parts of Asia and have developed an interest in Asian culture and heritage. I hope to continue travelling when I move to China and develop my understanding of the Chinese culture and lifestyle.
I am looking forward to having the opportunity to work in a vastly growing school, with excellent facilities, which will give its students the opportunity to develop across a broad curriculum and become truly global citizens.
