Director of Environmental Stewardship
Claudia joined the Student Services Department at GEMS World Academy in August 2021, working as a Learning Support Teacher. She has been teaching in the UAE for the last 12 years. Passionate about caring for and protecting our world, Claudia wishes to embark our community on a meaningful path towards improving the environmental footprint of our school, a change which inevitably leads to more sustainable and more responsible actions. She wants to engage our learners in tackling environmental problems at a level where they can see tangible results, spurring them on to realize that they really can make a difference, by having a say in the environmental management policy of our school and even the wider community. As Director of Environmental Stewardship, Claudia will be encouraging student-led actions through the Eco-schools’ program, integrating the Sustainable Development Goals into teaching and learning and coordinating events and activities to raise awareness of environmental issues.
