Primary Deputy Headteacher
Hello, my name is Michelle Cronin and I am a proud member of the CIA family. I started my teaching career in the UK and I graduated in 2012 with a BA Hons Degree in Primary Education with Qualified Teacher Status. Originally from Ireland, I moved to the UAE in search for new educational opportunities and cultural experiences. This is my 8th year working at GEMS Cambridge and I feel each year it is even more rewarding.
At my time at CIA, I have been a class teacher, Head of Year, Assistant Head Teacher in charge of Phonics and currently a Deputy Head Teacher overseeing English across the Primary Phase. As a leader, I endeavour to promote an inclusive learning environment, where everyone feels proud of their achievements. I look forward to another successful year ahead with our creative, innovative and wonderful learners.
