Year 12

Homeroom Teacher Introduction

My name is Paddy and I’m originally from County Armagh in Ireland. During the summer of 2015 I travelled to Thailand and was blown away by its outstanding natural beauty and the friendliness of its people. I decided that it would be the perfect destination to make my new home and embark on the next chapter of my teaching career. I am extremely excited by the prospect of working at HeadStart International School.

My passion for Science led me to study Biomedical Science at Queen’s University Belfast. After graduation I decided teaching was the ideal vocation. In 2011 I moved to Liverpool where I completed a PGCE in Secondary Science at Edge Hill University. Following this I secured a teaching position and moved to London. The last four years have been an invaluable experience, which has enabled me to develop a range of different teaching styles.

My own teaching philosophy fully engages with the idea that every child should have a fair chance of success and be given every possible opportunity to learn. I want to help young people develop an enquiring mind and high self-esteem. In essence I believe teaching should be about guiding pupils to discovery and not just the facilitation of information. I am looking forward to getting started this academic year and meeting the rest of the HeadStart community.
