Sawasdee krub! My name is Alex Cuesta and this will be my second year teaching at Headstart School. I was born and raised in Albacete, a small town in Spain. I graduated from the University of Castilla-La Mancha in Spain with a Bachelor of Education in 2010 and although I started teaching in my home country, most of my working experience comes from the UK where I have lived for 5 years. I have taught mainly lower primary students and particularly Year 2. I have also had the opportunity to work in Special needs Schools. I am usually described as a cheerful and flexible person with great sense of humour. I am also defined as an enthusiastic teacher with strong management skills and great ability to motivate students. Children find my teaching engaging and have a great time while learning. However, I place a big emphasis on discipline ensuring every child follows the class rules at all times. I usually prompt children to ask questions during class in order to stimulate their imagination and motivations. I believe it is important for students to develop skills working both independently and collaboratively and I provide a variety of opportunities for students to develop such skills. I have very high expectations of my students to reach their maximum potential and I am really looking forward to starting this academic year.
