KIPS Assistant Manager
Hi. My name is Sofia Carvalho. I’m Portuguese and a mother of two wonderful boys. I had been lawyer for all my life and moving to Qatar gave me the opportunity to live my great passion: being with children.
Back in Portugal, I created the parents’ association (aka PTA) at my children’s school and developed a project for the center of leisure for children after school time. That project is still running in my sons’ old school and also at the center for kids. As a president of PTA, I was also responsible for the extra- curricular activities throughout the school year for all classes. It was the beginning of an adventure that led me to a new passion and gave me the experience to apply here at KIPS where I started as Dragonflies teacher and now playing the role of assistant manager.
Coming to work every day is a joy and being surrounded by children is beyond wonderful. I am grateful and really happy to belong to KIPS TEAM!
