My name is Tim and I'm excited to begin my second year at HeadStart School teaching Year 6. I began my teaching training after graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science (Genetics) from Leicester University in the United Kingdom. I gained Qualified Teacher Status at Middlesex University and began teaching a Year 2 class in Finchley, North London. I then worked at a flagship sustainable school in Hertfordshire, where I led English across the school. My third appointment was back in North London, with a promotion to a senior management role leading Mathematics across the school. I also took up post as an Assistant Head in this setting. It was then that I decided I would like to pursue a career teaching overseas. During my thirteen years teaching, I have taught each of the primary age groups. I enjoy teaching all subjects and love when children become 'switched on' to a new area of learning and develop their own passion for a subject. My teaching philosophy places a strong value on creating ‘Growth mindset’ classrooms, where children see failure as an opportunity for growth. In this regard, I have been particularly inspired by Carol Dweck’s research. I enjoy literature, the sciences and sports. I like to play football and tennis, to sail and to climb. It is an exciting time to be apart of the school as it continues its journey towards excellence and I am delighted to work in such a vibrant and diverse community with a team of dedicated and highly skilled professionals.

Deputy Teacher

Hello, my name is Airl and I am very excited to begin my second year as a Deputy Teacher in Year 2 Yellow at HeadStart International School. I was born on one of the islands in the southern Philippines named Zamboanga del Sur but I grew up in the northern part -Baguio City. I graduated from Benguet State University with a Bachelor of Secondary Education Major in Biological Sciences. Though I am a Secondary-trained teacher, I have past experiences in teaching little children. I had been tutoring and been a volunteer teacher for primary during summers in my university days. I am passionate in motivating young people to make a change and develop new skills that can be used in their daily basis. I want to inspire students to dream big, do extraordinary things and keep moving even how many times they fail. I establish good relationships with students and parents, and love them despite their unique differences. I believe that every child needs a hand to care and touch their hearts and I am here to be part of their journey. Every time the children come in the classroom, I will do my best to provide a happy, loving and friendly environment for everyone that the children can call it a home. I am looking forward to an exciting year.
