My name is Chris and I am very much looking forward to my first year working at HeadStart International School. I grew up in a small village in North West England and completed my degree in Biochemistry at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. Following a year teaching English and Science in Phuket I have recently graduated from my PGCE in Secondary Science which I completed with the University of Manchester. I have enjoyed teaching a truly comprehensive cohort of students from all backgrounds during my teaching experience in Manchester and am now delighted to be returning to continue my teaching career in Thailand. I feel that all young people have a natural curiosity and drive to understand the world around them, which makes teaching science a pleasure. I aim to keep this curiosity and excitement alive in my classroom and strive to make sure that my students see science as something interesting that they can relate to their own day to day lives. My science lessons allow students to explore ideas and discover answers for themselves as much as possible, giving them hands on experience of what it really means to be a scientist. I feel very lucky that I will be able to combine my love of teaching with living in one of my favourite places in the world.
