An introduction to me

I have been living and teaching in the United Arab Emirates for 7 years. There are things that are going to feel strange. At the end of the the last academic year…….

I was known as Mr Neil (my first name) rather than Mr Dimmick

Face masks were still compulsory for all students and teachers

Students still had to be 1 metre apart

All meetings involving larger groups were online

Not allowed to shake hands

Most class sizes were 30

It is much warmer, in fact too hot sometimes

Even at the beginning of 2022, schools went fully remote for one week

Technology innovations being developed, such as Skyway transport, Hyperloop and the Museum of the Future
