“Being a new staff member for 2019-20, I am very much looking forward to getting to work at KCD as a new member of the Senior Leadership Team. I am passionate about maximizing the use of IT for teaching and learning, workplace efficiency, well being, and even for fun. I hope I can bring my experiences from the previous 14 years in Dubai schools to KCD and further develop all aspects of IT within the school. Exciting times are ahead.”
