Meet our founders

Meet Mark...

Mark is a full-time Computer Science teacher and Head of Subject at a leading secondary school in the UAE. Mark taught in the UK for 4 years before moving out to Dubai in 2009 to become the Primary ICT Specialist at Kings Dubai Primary School. From there he moved on to Dubai British School and then on to his current post at Dubai College.

In March 2013 Mark and Lee (CoFounders) identified a shortage in CPD opportunities in the UAE and so they founded SPARK, a platform for planning, promoting and organising TeachMeet events. SPARK is also a platform for sharing resources and tracking professional development.

Mark is a technology enthusiast who is very passionate about learning and sharing good practice.

“I am very proud of what we have achieved with SPARK and the fact that we have helped support over 2000 educators in the Middle East to get together and share what they do best. The people I have met and worked with along the way are some of the most inspiring people I will ever meet, I love being a teacher and I cannot wait to see where SPARK goes next in helping to establish a much more collaborative, proactive approach to learning and professional development.
